SCHOLARSHIP

An exchange student from our partner institution is eligible for a JASSO scholarship. Those who would like to apply for a JASSO scholarship should check “Yes” for “JASSO” in Question 1, “Are you intending to apply for a Japanese scholarship?” at page 4 of an application form. Only applicants who ticked it will be considered for scholarship nomination. Being nominated by Kyushu University, however, does not guarantee he/she will receive the scholarship–the final decision to award is made by the JASSO. If he/she is selected for nomination, Kyushu University will inform his/her home university and request any necessary supporting documentation, which then should be promptly forwarded. Please be noted that Kyushu University may not be able to notify him/her before his/her arrival to Japan if he/she is nominated or not .
