1) How to apply
Those who wish to apply for a scholarship that requires a university recommendation must submit in advance to Tokyo Tech the "Application for the Privately funded Scholarships" form, available twice a year in March/April and September/October. If you do not, you will miss the opportunity to apply for this kind of scholarship. Announcements are made on the bulletin boards in January for March/April and in July for September/October. The application form is provided at the Student Support Division in O-okayama and Suzukakedai. Please do not forget to submit it. The application form has to be brought by the applicant or by proxy to the Student Support Division in O-okayama Campus or Suzukakedai Campus. We will not accept submissions after the deadline, or by campus-mail or mail.
Grants for most scholarships in Japan start to be provided in April and last until March of the following year.Usually, each scholarship foundation will provide application guidelines between Autumn of the previous year and June. For a brief description of each scholarship offered at Tokyo Tech, please refer to the "List of the Private Scholarship Foundations"(Appendix 1)
2) How to be assessed
Applicants will be ranked in accordance with the "Recommendation Criteria for Privately Funded Scholarships". A selection committee, organized by academics in Tokyo Tech, will decide on which applicants to recommend by referring to this ranking system. The committee will consider the eligibility of applicants in function of each different scholarship. We will inform you only if you are selected by the committee.
We cannot tell you when you get the result because it depends on each foundation's schedule. Please note that not all the applicants will be recommended, and that even applicants that are pre-selected to apply for a scholarship will not be successful in obtaining one. The scholarship foundations will assess the applications of candidates that are recommended by Tokyo Tech.
