Embassy Recommendation

Application for the following fiscal year (for those arriving in Japan in October) is open between December of the previous year and the following February, and the primary screening (documentary examination, written test and interview) is conducted between mid-February and March at local Japanese embassies. Selected candidates are recommended to MEXT through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the end of April. MEXT then conducts a secondary screening and selects those applicants who have found recipient universities as scholarship grantees.
