This step-by-step introduction to the Japanese government MEXT Scholarship application process will show you when and how to apply, plus everything you need to know about eligibility and increasing your chances of success!

Free tuition. Living stipend of over 1.5 million yen per year. Round-trip flight to Japan.

This scholarship is not “too good to be true.” It is the Japanese Government investing in the world leaders of tomorrow. And it could benefit you.

Of course, there is a downside: The scholarship is incredibly competitive.

In order to give yourself the best chance to win, you need to know everything possible about the application process – the rules, the application timeline, and most importantly, the attitude and strategy required to stand out from the crowd.

How to Apply for the MEXT Scholarship is a no-nonsense guide to applying for the scholarship written by a former scholarship application administrator and one of the world’s leading independent experts on the subject.
