The recipient of this scholarship is not allowed to receive any other scholarships.
To be entitled to receive the scholarship from the second year onward, the recipient must meet the specified requirements every year. More details of this scholarship eligibility evaluation will be provided at the orientation meeting after the students arrive in Japan.
Even though you were not required to have known Japanese when you applied, it is always helpful to know the basic language of the country where you are going to study prior to your arrival. Particularly, it is strongly recommended that you study Hiragana, Katakana, and some basic greeting before you arrive in Japan so your transition to your new life in Japan will go smoothly.
To head start your Japanese language acquisition, here are several websites which assist students self-studying Japanese for free of charge.
Important!! We Need Your Name in Japanese!
When you first arrive in Japan, there will be several occasions which you will be asked to write your name in Japanese -- at school, dormitory, municipal offices, banks and others.
If you have never studied Japanese language and do not know how to write your name in Japanese, ask your Japanese friends or teachers how to write your name in Japanese and practice.
If you do not know any Japanese friends or teachers, e-mail us at email@example.com and give us your name in phonetic symbols or pronunciation symbols. We would like to make sure that your name should be pronounced and written in Japanese as close to its original pronunciation as possible.
It is very important that your name is pronounced and written as you wish to be in Japanese language since you will be using it for the next 4 years or more.
If you are diligent enough, take the very quick free lessons of the basic Japanese using the websites listed below. On eMinato, they offer a free online course on Hiragana and another course on Katakana. Each course takes about 20 hours to complete (2 hours a day for 10 days!).
The information will be sent to the student via email.
