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.

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.
