||In 1873, two American missionaries, including a Rockford Female Seminary graduate named Julia Dudley, and another Rockford area woman, Eliza Talcott, founded a Christian school for girls in Kobe City, Japan. The school later became Kobe College, a Christian four-year liberal arts college for women. In 1933 the college relocated to its present campus in Nishinomiya City, midway between Kobe and Osaka.|
Since 1922, Rockford College and Kobe College have maintained an active sister college relationship and student exchange program.
Qualifiying Kobe College juniors are awarded scholarships to study for two years at Rockford College. Similarly, Rockford College women students with Japanese language skills may also apply to study at Kobe.
