The Government of Japan has invited applications from Indian students pursuing research for scholarships under the MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology) scholarship programme. The scholarships are offered for the academic year 2025, with the application submission deadline set for May 3, 2024. The scholarship will be paid depending on the course enrolled in. A supplemental regional allowance of 2,000 yen or 3,000 yen per month will be added to the monthly scholarship amount for the grantees studying or conducting research in specially designated regions. Due to the situation of the Japanese Government's budget, the amount of payment may be subject to change each fiscal year. If a grantee is absent from the university for an extended period, the scholarship shall be suspended for that period. Fees for entrance examinations, matriculation, and tuition at universities will be paid by MEXT. However, the entrance examination fee will be borne by the grantees if they cannot proceed to the master's course.
