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!
