In order to be qualified as a scholarship recipient, students are required to satisfy all the following conditions (*subject to change);

1) Must hold nationality of countries that have diplomatic relations with Japan. Taiwan (ROC) and Palestine are included. Those who have Japanese nationality at the time of application are NOT acceptable.
2) Needs to be already accepted by Meiji University based on student exchange cooperation agreement etc.
3) Demonstrates excellent academic and personal records in the home university. The student’s grade of the previous academic year must be equal or over 2.30 out of 3.00 which is calculated by the JASSO GPA formula. If there is no last academic year evaluation, previous semester grade score will be used.
4) Needs the scholarship to attend the program for financial reason.

6) If a student receives another scholarship (including from Meiji University and/or from the home university) to participate the program, the total amount of the support (excluding air fare, scholarship loan, and academic loan) should not exceed 80 thousand per month.

If there are more than 2 students who satisfy all the conditions, the best three would be selected based on the order of grade evaluation score. We, School of Science and Technology (SST), Meiji University will select the candidate and recommend them to JASSO. Please note that satisfying all the requirements and recommendation from Meiji University do not mean that students are guaranteed to receive the scholarship. The result of selection by SST will be notified to the home institution around the beginning of May.
