The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) Scholarship program was established to increase the number of international students enrolled in Japanese universities. You can apply for a MEXT Scholarship in any of the following ways.

(a) By Embassy Recommendation
Japanese embassies/consulates accept applications on behalf of the MEXT, which then makes a decision on the scholarship recipients.

(b) By Kyushu University Recommendation
Kyushu University recommends candidates to the MEXT, which in turn selects the scholarship recipients.
Qualified candidates may apply for any program the University offers (slots for unspecified programs), but they may have a better chance of being awarded a scholarship if they apply for special programs offered by the Graduate School of Engineering (slots for designated programs*).
* Pending MEXT approval. For details of the programs, please contact the Graduate School of Engineering.

(c) Through Kyushu University Nomination
To apply for a MEXT Scholarship in this category, the candidate must already be a student enrolled at Kyushu University. The MEXT makes the final decision based on the recommendations made by the University.
