WHO: those with a minimum of a bachelor's degree, under the age of 35.
WHAT: This award is offered on an annual basis to those with a minimum of a bachelor's degree, under the age of 35, who wish to continue their studies in Japan. The scholarship is offered for both research and taught postgraduate courses. With regard to a taught course, any additional entry requirements specified by each particular university must be met. No knowledge of Japan or the Japanese language is necessary.
WHEN: Scholarships are tenable from either April or October each year. Those leaving in April will hold their award for two years, whilst those departing in October will hold theirs for 18 months.
PAYMENTS: The Japanese Government provides return air fare, school fees and a monthly grant of ¥150,000 ( subject to change).
DETAILS: Grantees can pursue research or study in any field as long as it is related to their field of expertise or previous study. It can be difficult, however, to place students who wish to study visual and performing arts. Candidates are encouraged to establish contacts with Japanese academics in their field when applying for the scholarship. University preferences are taken into account as far as possible.
