Where to Study
The Embassy of Japan is excited to announce that applications for the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho: MEXT) Scholarships for the 2023 academic year are now open.
*The scholarship is currently open for undergraduate studies and postgraduate research students only.
There are two ways to apply for a Japanese Government Scholarship: Through "embassy recommendation", by applying to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) with a recommendation from a Japanese embassy or other Japanese diplomatic mission in your country,
by "university recommendation", by applying to the MEXT with a recommendation from a Japanese university.
The method of receiving a recommendation from an embassy or consulate abroad is called an "embassy recommendation," while the method of receiving a recommendation from a university and applying for a position is called a "university recommendation."
The contents differ slightly depending on whether you apply through the "embassy recommendation" or the "university recommendation," so the information is divided into two categories depending on the application method.
