Scholarships (Scholarship List)

The Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies offers a comprehensive financial support, including campus Scholarships such as the Okuma Memorial Scholarship, the Ono Azusa Memorial Scholarship, Scholarships for Ph.D. students, and our own GSAPS Scholarships. In addition, there are various kinds of scholarships sponsored by organizations outside of the university such as the scholarships by the Japan Student Services Organization (awarded to Japanese students), scholarships by private foundations and the Tuition Reduction Scheme (covering 50%of the tuition; awarded to privately – financed international students). Listed below are scholarships granted to students at the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies, in AY2018.
In principle application for scholarships is made after matriculation. However, application for some scholarships can be made prior to matriculation. (Please refer to the section ‘Scholarship Admissions‘.)
Graduate school recipients of ‘Category 1’ loans by the Japan Student Services Organization, whom JASSO recognizes as having achieved particularly outstanding results during their studies may be exempted from repaying half or the entire loan after the borrowing period expires. In AY 2018, about 30% of the recipients of ‘Category 1’award have been granted full or partial exemption.
* An international student with a [Permanent Resident], [Long Term Resident], [Spouse or Child of Japanese citizen] or [Spouse or Child Permanent Resident] status will be required to register for scholarship as a Japanese student.
