Qualified international students, who may have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language, to enroll in Tokyo Tech's Master's or Doctoral Programs and pursue an advanced degree in Japan as lectures and seminars are held in English. However, students are given opportunities to attend Japanese language classes on a regular basis in order to better adapt to daily life in Japan.

This program aims to recruit qualified students who are expected to apply for a scholarship offered by a non-Japanese government or organization before their enrollment in a Doctoral Program at Tokyo Tech, and thus need to obtain written confirmation of admission to the Program.

Funders of scholarships provided to past applicants include the China Scholarship Council (CSC), the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP) and the Indonesian Directorate General of Higher Education (DGHE or DIKTI).
