3) Registration Schedule

2020 Registration for Privately Funded Scholarships
One year from mid September

Registration period

During this period, recommended students will be selected in sequence according to the recruitment of private foundations, and the selected students will be contacted individually.

There is no deadline for this registration.

However, there are many selections for scholarships for AY 2021 from November so we will recommend you to submit all documents by October 9, 2020 (Fri).
Those who have submitted the required documents to the Student Support Division by this date will be subject to screening from the first selection.
Even if you cannot submit by this date, submitting early will increase the number of scholarships eligible for selection.

Regarding the registration of new students who will enroll in April 2021, we plan to provide a new registration period on this page around the beginning of March 2021.

4) How to be assessed

Applicants will be ranked in accordance with the "Recommendation Criteria for Privately Funded Scholarships". We will decide on which applicants to recommend by referring to this ranking system and 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 it will be, 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.
If you are not selected as a candidate, there wil be no notifications.
