Japanese Government Scholarships for 2022-2023

-

The Embassy of Japan’s Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) is now taking applications for the 2023 Japanese Government (MEXT/Monbukagakusho) Scholarship Program in the following categories: Research, Undergraduate, Specialized Training College, and College of Technology.

Research Student Scholarship

This fellowship allows students to spend at least 18 or 24 months undertaking independent study under the supervision of a Japanese professor. The grant is open to any field of study, but applicants must find a Japanese professor who would supervise their research. Look for instructors in the preferred topic of study on the websites of Japanese universities. This does not, however, guarantee that the applicant will be assigned to that professor. After passing the initial screening, applicants are permitted to contact instructors directly.

Qualification for the Scholarship

  • Applicants must have been born between April 2, 1988 and April 2, 1989. Applicants must be graduates of a university or college.
  • Applicants must aim to continue a course of study that they have already begun, rather than starting a new field of study.
  • Applicants must get a “Letter of Provisional Acceptance” from a Japanese professor ready to supervise the applicant’s study after passing the first screening procedure.
  • The applicants may acquire and receive instruction in Japanese if the host university thinks it necessary.

Deadline

  • May 31, 2022 (Tuesday)

Undergraduate Student Scholarship

This scholarship allows applicants to study for up to five (5) or seven (7) years at a Japanese college or university as an undergraduate degree student in one of two fields of study: Natural Science or Social Science (for those majoring in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or a six-year course in pharmacy).

Qualification for the Scholarship

  • Applicants must have been born on or after April 2, 1998 to be eligible.
  • By March of the year of departure, applicants must have completed high school.
  • Applicants must learn and get Japanese language education.

Deadline

  • May 31, 2022 (Tuesday)

Instructions to Follow for the Scholarships

  1. All submitted documents will not be returned; if you anticipate the need to keep a copy of the criteria for your own records, you should do so BEFORE submitting the documents.
  2. Only originals or certified true copies of the Academic Transcript of Records and Certificates of Graduation of the school/university may be presented for the set of original documents. Documents that have been notarized will also be acceptable. Please double-check that the information on certified documents is legible. Additionally, if the document is not in English or Japanese, please provide a translation from the school or institution.
  3. MEDICAL CERTIFICATE ON PRESCRIBED FORM – The medical examination may be conducted in any hospital or health facility, as long as the form is completed in accordance with the rules. Please request that the doctor complete all relevant fields. Please ask the physician to sign the form with their moist signature as much as feasible. If a physical signature is not available from the hospital or health institution, the digital or scanned copy must be notarized or certified.
  4. A certificate of linguistic competency must be submitted by all applicants. A certificate from the applicant’s most recent university stating that “English is the medium of instruction” is also acceptable.
  5. RECOMMENDATION LETTER: Letters containing the recommender’s wet signature are preferred. If the recommender is unable to sign the letter in person, the applicant may send a notarized copy of the letter with an electronic signature. Letters that have been physically signed must be placed in sealed letter envelopes.
  6. Please make the number of copies specified in the rules for each document. If the list specifies 1 original and 1 copy and the applicant is unable to provide the original, 2 copies of the document (1 certified true copy and 1 photocopy) must be supplied. For the document screening, only those with complete application documents will be considered.
  7. We are unable to confirm receipt of materials from each applicant due to the large amount of applications received each year. Please check with your courier service provider to see how you may verify that your documents were delivered or received. Requests for application status will be ignored.
  8. Only those who have been shortlisted for the examinations and interview will be contacted. Candidates must sit the exam in person at the Japanese Embassy in Pasay City, as required by MEXT regulations. The interview might take place either online or in person at the Japanese Embassy.
  9. Remove all staple wires from the documents and number them in the right upper corner according to their number on the list. Place as many of your documents as feasible in a single envelope or folder, ordered according to the list. To make document checking easier, split documents into sets with paper clips or binder clips. (A single set consists of one original or copy of each of the guidelines’ documents.)
  10. Please send your application packet to the following address by the deadline date specified.
