Are you a citizen of one of ADB’s developing member countries? Are you looking for an opportunity to undertake postgraduate studies in economics, management, science and technology, and other development-related fields? If so, the Asian Development Bank-Japan Scholarship Program (ADB-JSP) may be just what you need.
The ADB-JSP provides scholarships to well-qualified citizens of ADB’s developing member countries to undertake postgraduate studies in the Asian and Pacific regions. The program aims to help scholars contribute to the economic and social development of their home countries.
About 300 scholarships are awarded annually, covering full tuition fees, a monthly subsistence and housing allowance, an allowance for books and instructional materials, medical insurance, and travel expenses. The scholarship is for one year with an extension to the second year of study, as appropriate, which shall be conditional on the scholar maintaining a satisfactory level of performance as determined by the institute. The maximum duration of the scholarship award is two years for master’s and doctorate programs.
To be eligible, you must be a national of an ADB borrowing member country, have gained admission to an approved MA/PhD course at an academic institution, have a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent with a superior academic record, have at least two years of full-time professional working experience (acquired after a university degree) at the time of application, be proficient in oral and written English communication skills to be able to pursue studies, and be not more than 35 years old at the time of application. In exceptional cases, for programs which are appropriate for senior officials and managers, the age limit is 45 years old.
Applicants should request information and application forms from the chosen academic institution and indicate that they are applying for admission and that they would like to be considered for the ADB-JSP Scholarship. The completed institution application form and required documentation, including the ADB-JSP Information Sheet form, should be submitted to the academic institution. No separate application to ADB is necessary.
