Honors Scholarships are scholarships applicable for privately financed international students (undergraduate students, graduate students and non-degree seeking research students), who have the resident status “Student”, and who fall under neither the classification of Japanese government scholarship students nor students dispatched by foreign governments. Unlike other scholarships, students are expected to apply for the Honors Scholarships in the office of each Faculty. The recruitment period is only in April of each year. However, in the case of a vacancy or additional acceptance of recipients, those who applied in April may be selected as recipients of the scholarships at any time.
* JASSO is an abbreviation of the Japan Student Services Organization.
