The University of Tsukuba established the Tsukuba Scholarship specifically for international students in our English programs. Approximately, five students in Social Sciences and eight students in the Life and Environmental Sciences will receive this scholarship in their first year. There are also second, third, and fourth year versions of the Tsukuba Scholarship.
There are also many scholarships available from outside organizations like the Japanese government, foundations, and companies. We strongly encourage all students to apply for these scholarships in their second and subsequent years.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
