(4) Screening

Because all scholarships have a quota for recommendations and the numbers 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 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.

(5) Confirmation of screening results

If your documents have passed the screening and you are eligible for an interview, you will be contacted individually at your keio.jp e-mail address from the university office in charge. If it is decided that you will be recommended after the final screening, "Recommended" will be displayed on the Online Scholarship Application System (you have not been officially selected at this stage). If you are officially selected after this, "Selected" will be displayed on the Online Scholarship Application System and you can confirm the amount that is to be transferred. If you are not selected, "Not selected" will be displayed on the Online Scholarship Application System. The screening and decision-making process will not be disclosed.

(6) Selection and payment of scholarship stipend

The stipend will be transferred to the student recipients' bank account if screening is passed. Some scholarships will require students to carry out the prescribed 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 their campus and follow the prescribed procedures.
