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

When scholarships become open for applications, it will be notified on the scholarship bulletin board. Make sure to read the scholarship outlines, application guidelines, and other relevant information.
Scholarship recruitment and applications take place mostly from April to May. If you are considering applying for a scholarship, make sure to not miss the application periods.



2. Preparing the application documents

When applying for scholarships, you will need the Shōgakukin Annai (Scholarship Information Guidebook), which is available at the scholarship section on your campus. Confirm the details of the necessary application documents in the guidebook or the application guidelines for each scholarship before preparing your application.



3. Applying

[Note] Application methods for the Fall Semester in the 2020 academic year are different to normal. Please follow the methods described in "How to apply for scholarships in the Fall Semester of AY 2020 (for students with Japanese citizenship, etc.)."

The application period differs for each scholarship. Furthermore, the application period, deadline, office hours, and where to submit your applications to also differ depending on the campus. This information is not available online, so make sure to check the scholarship bulletin board on your campus.
Applications must be made by the applicant at the campus they are affiliated to. Guarantors and friends cannot submit the application documents on behalf of the applicant, and applications sent by post are not accepted. For some unavoidable reason the applicant cannot submit his/her application within the designated period, he/she must go to the scholarship section and consult a staff member.
The last day of the application period is always very busy. Applicants must take into consideration class times, and make sure that they have sufficient time to apply. Submitted documents are, under no circumstances, returned to the applicants.



4. Selection

All scholarships have a quota or a quota for recommendations so 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 timeline 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.
All information and notices regarding scholarships (recruitment, interview, announcement of nominations, announcement of recipients, etc.) will be posted on the bulletin board on your campus, so make sure to not miss them.



5. Selection and payment of funds

The scholarship recipients will be announced on your campus. Some scholarships require the students to carry out prescribed procedures after the results are announced. The funds will be transferred to the recipients' bank account.
If the scholarship recipient repeats the previous year, takes a leave of absence, or withdraws from the university, the provision of the scholarship or loan may be terminated, or part of the funds already received may have to be returned. If any of the above cases apply, the student must swiftly go to the scholarship section on their campus and follow the prescribed procedures.
