Do you dream of studying in Japan? There are so many scholarship opportunities out there, but it can be overwhelming to sort through them all. Even with Google on our finger tips, it’s better if we have a consolidated list of Japanese scholarships. Now, with the help of Japan Study Support, you can now find scholarships in Japan easier!
The site has four kinds of Japanese scholarships listed on their website.
- Scholarships from the Japanese government’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (Monbukagakusho)
- Scholarships offered by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO)
- Scholarships from local governments and international exchange organizations
- Scholarships offered by private scholarship foundations
It’s also easy to search for scholarships from your desired school or area in Japan through search filters. They provide information such as stipend inclusions, application periods and deadlines, and other things you need to know.
Another perk of using their website is that they also list scholarships that are exclusively available to JPSS members.
What else does JPSS have to offer?
If you scroll down the website, you can also check which universities cater to international students per prefecture or degree. The site is also offered in multiple languages, including but not limited to Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.
Aside from searching for scholarships, they also have a guide that can help you in your every day life in Japan as a foreign student. This is useful information even before you start studying in Japan so that you can properly prepare for what lies ahead.
The site also has a 40-question academic suitability test where you can check which career path best suits you. This is good for those who are planning to study in Japan for their undergraduate degree or those who want to shift careers.
Thanks to this handy website, studying under a scholarship in Japan can now become a reality!
Good luck and may all of your dreams come true!
