The Kubota Fund is a charitable trust established in 1984 by the late Yutaka Kubota, founder of Nippon Koei Co. Ltd. The founding was done with the notion of contributing necessary funds from his own property. Since then, the fund has helped and assisted many trainees and researchers from all over the world. 

The Kubota Fund was established especially for individuals from developing countries that are rapidly improving their social and economic infrastructures by backing it with economic as well as technical support from industrialized countries.
