Application guidelines


The application for the program should be submitted through the institution (Individual applications are not accepted). The institutions must submit the complete documents to JSPS by the end of the application period.

Please note that your institution may give you an early deadline to compile all application forms that will be submitted to JSPS (it could be more than a month before the deadline set by JSPS, depending on the procedure each institution takes).
