MEXT Scholarship in 2020 – Travis from TranSenz Interviewed

Recently, I had the honor to be interviewed by Khamida and Kayta, two amazing MEXT Scholarship winners, for their video podcast, Tokyo State of Mind. We talk about:

  • What the MEXT Scholarship covers
  • My background with the MEXT Scholarship and why I started this blog
  • Common applicant mistakes
  • Common points of confusion in the MEXT Scholarship application
  • Common worries of MEXT scholarship applicants
  • Khamida and Katya’s application experience and challenges
  • The most common reason my university rejected requests of letters of acceptance
  • Why MEXT asks for a Field of Study and Research Program Plan
  • What MEXT wants from the scholarship and how you can use that
  • What you need to focus on while applying during the COVID-19 pandemic

. . . and more!

I highly recommend it as a great place to start for anyone wanting to learn more about the scholarship!
