(1) Procedures for Receiving Scholarships
To receive payment, international students must visit the International Students Section once every month to sign an enrollment registry to confirm your enrollment. Scholarship will be transferred to the Japan Post Bank savings account of the student.
Please open an account at a post office as soon as you come to Japan or when you become a Japanese Government Scholarship student. When completing procedures to open an account, please take some form of personal identification, such as your residence card.
The deadlines of confirmation are designated twice a month. The date of payment of the scholarship depends on when you sign. For more details, ask the International Students Section.

(2) Extension of the Period for Receiving the Scholarship
When a student wishes to continue her studies, she can apply for an extension of the scholarship period. However, in some cases like Japanese Studies Students, an application for extension is not available. International students who wish to have their period of grants extended should consult with the International Students Section of the International Division for more details.

(3) Travel Expenses on Returning to the Home Country
When Japanese Government Scholarship students return to their home countries in the same month of finishing the designated period, they will be given an air ticket from Narita Airport (or Kansai International airport) to the nearest airport in their home countries. The air ticket will not be provided to those who stay in Japan beyond the designated period or those who return home in the middle of the scholarship period. You must note that the request for the air ticket is not accepted after the end of scholarship period.
The application deadline at our university is 2 months before you wish to return. (However, if you wish to depart at the end of the fiscal year (March), submit the form by the end of December.)
When you complete your period of study abroad and make a plan to return home, please contact the International Students Section of the International Division in advance.
For details, you may contact the International Students Section.
2.Scholarships for Private-Expense International Students
