Note 2: Applicants cannot simultaneously receive two scholarships based on university recommendation.
Note 3: Not all candidates recommended by the university will be accepted by the scholarship foundations.
Note 4: Not all applicants will be recommended to a scholarship foundation; therefore, students are advised to simultaneously apply for a scholarship through direct application as well. (Please also note that, if you receive a scholarship through direct application, you are ineligible for any scholarships through recommendation from the university, as you cannot simultaneously receive two scholarships.)
Note 5: Only candidates who have been selected for recommendation will be notified.
Note 6: An additional recruitment for scholarship applications is organized the following year in April, for degree-students or non-degree research students who enroll from August 2017 to April 2018. Students who have already applied at our university at the time of the July recruitment cannot apply during this additional recruitment. (Students who were not able to apply due to a leave of absence from the university, but who will re-enroll the following academic year, may apply.)
