University of Tsukuba Scholarships for Foreign and International Students

University of Tsukuba Scholarships

Some Japanese scholarships need to be applied for through the enrolled university in Japan (University Recommendation) while others can be applied for directly by the applicants (Individual Application).

The University of Tsukuba administers scholarships to foreign international students under 3 groups: the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho: MEXT) scholarship (both undergraduate and postgraduate), University Recommendation Scholarships AND Individual Application Scholarships.

Please note that the period of applications and qualifications etc are subject to change. Also note that only few scholarship foundations invite applications before the students’ enrollment in Japanese universities.

  4. Selected candidates will be informed about the procedure required in order to submit their applications to the respective scholarship foundations by the president of the university through the dean of their educational orginization.
