Most Important Part of Your MEXT Scholarship Application

Do you want to win the MEXT Scholarship? Are you worried if your application is competitive or if you really have a chance?

If that’s you, you need to focus on making your Field of Study and Research Program Plan the best it can be.

Nothing else under your control can make as much of a difference in your MEXT Scholarship application. The Field of Study and Research Program Plan gives you the opportunity to stand out from other applicants, impress your reviewers, and win the scholarship.

With that much pressure on a single document, it helps to have a coach with experience from helping thousands of MEXT Scholarship applicants in the past. And that’s exactly what you’ll get in this book. I have read hundreds of Fields of Study and Research Program Plans from successful and unsuccessful applications, plus offered direct coaching and answered questions to thousands more applicants, and I condense all of that experience and knowledge into this guide.

If you want to know:

  • Why the Field of Study and Research Program Plan matters
  • How to choose a research topic
  • How to write and validate your research question
  • How to format and write your Field of Study and Research Program Plan, including:
    • How long and detailed it should be for maximum effectiveness
    • What to include and what to leave out
    • How to meet the reviewer’s expectations
    • Mistakes that will reduce your chances and how to avoid them
  • Why and how to review and revise your plan

Then this is the book for you!

Practical Exercises and Analysis of Past Plans

Throughout the book, I include exercises designed to help you apply the information from each chapter to complete your own Field of Study and Research Plan. By the time you finish the book, you should have a final product that you can submit with your MEXT Scholarship application.

I also include analysis of plans submitted by past TranSenz readers and three plans that past applicants have shared online, so that you can read their submissions alongside my review to apply the lessons to your own plan.

Both the exercises and the analyses are available as pdf downloads, regardless of the format you purchase the book in, for easy reference.

Take Advantage of the Expertise of Thousands of Applicants

I have spent seven years working in international student recruiting and acceptance for Japanese universities, including three years as the direct point of contact for all MEXT scholarship inquiries and applications at a large, private university. During that time, I have personally processed hundreds of applications and have shared my experience to help over 5000 MEXT scholarship applicants through the process through this blog, which is one of the world’s leading independent sources of information and advice on the MEXT scholarship.

My Mastering the MEXT Scholarship Application: The TranSenz Guide series builds on the blog articles, questions from readers, and further, exhaustive research of successful applicants’ approaches and experiences to bring you the best practices for every step of the application process. It is perfect for the applicant who wants to go deeper than the blog posts do to perfect their application and leave nothing to chance.

Get Started Today!

It is never too early to start working on your Field of Study and Research Program Plan. Most successful applicants spend at least 1-3 months working on this document, and some spend as many as 6, from starting to develop their research topic through completing the proposal.
