Procedures for receiving monthly scholarships (Japanese Government Scholarship, Japan-Korea Joint Government Scholarship, and Honors Scholarship)

In order to receive a monthly scholarship, students need to sign the International Students Enrollment Ledger at the International Student Mobility Division during the period specified below. Payment can only be made to those whose signatures are confirmed by the International Student Mobility Division. Signatures must be written by the recipients themselves, and may not be substituted with seal imprints. Any scholarship received following an incorrect procedure must be returned to the provider.

The latest scholarship signing/payment schedule is provided in the table below (for Honors Scholarship recipients, the first signing period begins in June).

Please note that students who are outside the country for an entire month will not be paid for that period.

Also note that all these scholarship programs require that recipients have "College Student" residence status; students must have obtained this status before the first payment day. Recipients who have lost this status will become ineligible for further payments, and must return any amount received after the change occurred.
