They are offering scholarships aimed at those aspiring to pursue Master’s or Doctoral degree programs at Japanese graduate schools for the academic year 2024-2025. This initiative is designed to support foreign scholars who have chosen Japan as their destination for higher education, whether they are just commencing or planning to embark on their graduate studies.

Funded by the Japanese Government, this scholarship caters specifically to international students seeking to further their education in Japan at the Master’s or Doctoral level.

The scholarship benefits include a generous monthly stipend throughout the minimum period needed to complete the degree, varying from ¥210,000 for shorter programs to ¥160,000 for programs extending up to five years.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to apply online, providing all necessary documentation through the designated “Online application system.” Successful applicants will be issued an application number, crucial for the announcement of the awardees on the foundation’s website. The deadline for application submissions is set for April 30, 2024.
