The University calls for application for privately financed international students who wish to receive scholarships through university recommendation for AY2020-21 (ex. Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho) Scholarship (domestic recruitment), Tsukuba Scholarship, Monbukagakusho Honors Scholarship and other private scholarships).
The University collectively calls for applicants for next year’s scholarships once a year in July. Applications for scholarships through university recommendation are accepted only this time. Therefore, students wishing to receive a scholarship through university recommendation for AY 2020-21 are strongly encouraged to apply this time after carefully reading the Application Guide.
Please note that the number of the scholarships through university recommendation is limited; therefore, all the applicants will not be necessarily recommended to the scholarship foundations. Moreover, even if an applicant is recommended, there is no guarantee that the applicant will be accepted by the scholarship foundation.
