Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho) Scholarship

Thank you for visiting our website on the Monbukagakusho (MEXT: Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) Scholarship.

These instructions are for those wishing to apply for a scholarship recommended by a Japanese embassy or consulate general (“Embassy Recommendation”).

  1. You will submit all the necessary documents as an e-mail attachment to the International Affairs Division, Nihon University.
  2. Annual application period runs from April 1 to July 31.
  3. Your future supervisor will be decided in the process of application and you are unable to directly contact the faculty before getting the final result.
  4. We will start handling your application after you have handed in all the necessary documents.
