Scholarships After Enrolling
Scholarships potentially available after starting class at IUJ
Students may have chances to apply for scholarships provided by the following foundations after they have enrolled and started classes at IUJ. You are not able to apply before coming to campus and settling in here. Scholarship Information will be posted on the Office of Student Services bulletin board. The OSS staff will assist with the applications. Many of the scholarships are provided by outside sources, and only administered by the OSS. IUJ cannot guarantee these will be available every year, nor that an IUJ student will win the scholarship in the country-wide competitive process (except Nakayama-Alumni Scholarship).
