Applicable after entrance
There are scholarships especially for international students from Waseda University (including Waseda University Partial Tuition-Waiver Scholarship for Privately Financed International Students and Azusa Ono Memorial Scholarship) and outside organization (about 100 scholarships).
However, the number of students receiving a scholarship is limited and thus it is not appropriate for you to make financial plans assuming you will get a scholarship. It is especially difficult to get a scholarship right after entrance, so you should be able to secure enough funding on your own at the time of application. For more details on scholarships applicable after entrance, please visit the Waseda University Center for International Education website.
