The Japanese Government’s Scholarship

Ten Applicants who have exceptional academic records will be awarded the Japanese Government’s MEXT scholarship by recommendation of The University of Tokyo for the period of either the Doctoral program or the Masters program. If you complete the Masters course with distinguished achievement or with a substantial contribution to your field of research, you may be provided a chance to continue working toward a Doctoral degree under a continuing scholarship. The Scholarship grantees are exempt from Entrance Fee and Annual Tuition Fees throughout their entire term of study. They are also provided with round-trip air tickets from their home country to Japan.


The Graduate Council of The University of Tokyo grants admission to this program based upon the recommendation of the School of Engineering. Screening for admission is based both on the evaluation of documents submitted by the international students and on Internet interviews conducted by the faculty. Once the evaluation process is complete, ten top qualified applicants will be nominated as candidates for the MEXT Scholarship and several more applicants will be granted admission to this program on a non-scholarship basis.
