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.
