Want to pursue (post)graduate studies in Japan with a Monbukagakusho Research Scholarship?
The Monbukagskusho Scholarship (also known as Monbusho Scholarship, MEXT Scholarship or Japanese Government Scholarship) is the dream of thousands of students worldwide. Established in 1954 and offered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), it is a scholarship that covers full tuition and very generous monthly stipend for accepted students to attend internationally respected universities in Japan, pursue their academic interests, and receive degrees and qualifications in their respective studies. To date, more than 75,000 students from approximately 160 countries have received this prestigious scholarship and studied at top universities in Japan.
The Monbukagakusho application process (Monbukagakusho Scholarship 2017-2018, Monbukagakusho 2017-2018), however, can be extremely frustrating and confusing due to the lack of clear guidelines and instructions in filling out the applications and completing the process.
Most applicants believe that their success onto obtaining the scholarship is exclusively biased to their performance during application, which is a big common mistake. There are several factors and qualifications that are taken into account by Monbukagakusho coordinators, and some of them should be acquired, or built, long before applying. It is strongly recommended that you start preparing as soon as possible in order to get a better idea on what is expected from applicants in terms of their skills, academic records and research experiences.
