MEXT Scholarships

Those who would like to apply for scholarships through the Japanese Government (MEXT) with Embassy Recommendation, please read below.

MEXT scholarship applications are finalized about 13 months prior to coming to IUJ in September, each year. The process starts 1.5 years before the start of your IUJ program.

For consideration, contact the Japanese embassy or consulate nearest you for the application form and their schedule. After you pass the preliminary screening conducted by the Embassy or Consulate, contact IUJ (we are not allowed to help you before then). Please contact IUJ as soon as possible after passing the screening in order to allow enough time to complete the process considering summer holidays. IUJ will ask for TOEFL, IELTS or TOIEC scores, and for the MBA candidates a GMAT score (or GRE for some that qualify), and other supportive documents.

Note: IUJ will accept MEXT scholars only for the period needed to complete the degree for which the scholar plans to enroll. An additional 6 months of Japanese language training is not necessary for MEXT scholars who enroll at IUJ.
