1) Monbukagakusho Honors Scholarship for Privately Financed International Students(from JASSO)

2) Private Scholarships

Private foundations offer scholarships to international students (Hereinafter; private scholarships). Private scholarship can be divided into the following 2 types.

I) Scholarships that applicants should apply by "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application System"

This type of scholarship has a limitation of the number of applicants for each university, so Gifu University selects applicants to be recommended.

In Gifu University, only those who applied to "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application" can be selected as applicants to be recommended for this type of scholarship. We provide the information of "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application" every July of the previous year, so those who want to apply for private scholarship type 1, apply for the system previously. Here is the list of scholarship type 1. 

*Gifu University accepts the Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application.
Please contact the office of Faculty/Graduate School for details.

II) Scholarships that can be applied without applying "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application System"

This type of scholarship doesn't have a limitation on the number of applicants for each university. Applicants can apply without selection by the university.
When the foundation provides information, we inform on this website, through faculties that international students belong to, at the boards of Inbound and Outbound Student Affairs Office and International Student, and Center for Japanese Language and Culture. As for some of the scholarships, applicants have to apply to the office of their faculties. Please be careful about the deadline because it can be different for each faculty. As for the other scholarships, they have to apply directly to the Foundation by post or through the website. Here is the current information on scholarships.
