How to apply

The general application process for scholarships is explained here. Details vary depending on the scholarships, so applicants should refer to the Shōgakukin Annai (Scholarship Information Guidebook) and the application guidelines to each of the scholarships.



1. Confirming which scholarships you have applied for

Announcements will be made sequentially on the Information on Scholarships/Financial Aid page of the Keio University Student Website for each campus as and when scholarships make calls for applications. Please be sure to read the scholarship outlines, application guidelines, and other relevant information.
Scholarship recruitments and applications mostly take place from April to May. If you are considering applying for a scholarship, please make sure that you do not miss the application periods.



2. Preparing the application documents

The Shōgakukin Annai (Scholarship Information Guidebook) is required to apply for scholarships. Hard copies of the guidebook are available at the scholarship section at the campus where you are enrolled. A PDF version is also available at the bottom of this webpage. Please confirm the details of the necessary application documents in the guidebook and the application guidelines for each scholarship before preparing your application.


3. Applying

Application periods differ for each scholarship. Furthermore, the application periods/deadline dates, submission times, and places to apply also differ according to the campus where a student is enrolled. Please check the Information on Scholarships/Financial Aid page for the campus to which you are affiliated on the Keio University Student Website.
Applications must be made by the applicant in person at the campus he/she is affiliated to. We do not accept submissions from guarantors, friends, etc., on a student's behalf. Furthermore, under no circumstances will applications be accepted for scholarships for which the deadline (date and time) has already elapsed. If for an unavoidable reason (attending an academic conference, educational practical, etc.) the applicant cannot submit his/her application within the designated period, he/she must consult with a staff member at the service counter in advance.
The last day of the application period is always very busy. Applicants must take into consideration the times of classes, and make sure that they have sufficient time to apply. Under no circumstances will the documents that have been submitted be returned to applicants.



4. Selection

Because all scholarships have a quota for recommendations and the number of students accepted, not all applicants will be successful in their applications. Each scholarship has a selection process, and in some cases, students are required to submit an essay or undergo an interview. The time frame from recruitment to the selection of applicants is often quite tight, so if an application is incomplete or contains errors, it may not be considered for selection.
You will in principle be contacted regarding scholarships (recruitments, interviews, announcements of nominees and officially selected students, etc.) via the Online Scholarship Application System. Please pay due attention to the system when making an application to a scholarship.



5. Selection and payment of funds

The scholarship will be transferred to an account made out in the student's name. Some scholarships will require students to carry out a prescribed set of procedures after selection. Please follow the instructions that are provided.
If the scholarship recipient repeats the previous year, takes a leave of absence, studies abroad, or withdraws from the university, the provision of the scholarship or loan may be terminated, or part of the stipend already received may have to be returned. If any of the above cases apply, the student must swiftly report this to the scholarship section on his/her campus and complete the necessary procedures.
