Scholarships

Two types of scholarships are available: those for which the university provides recommendations and those for which students apply individually. When deciding on recipients of scholarships for which the university provides recommendations, the university will select recipients via an internal selection process. The internal selection process will focus on academic records and economic circumstances. Receiving a recommendation from the university does not necessarily mean that the individual who received the recommendation will be chosen to receive the scholarship. Furthermore, Shizuoka University does not recognize duplicate applications for or duplicated receipt of scholarships.

Examples of scholarships chosen by the university

I. Scholarships operated by outside organizations (as of May 2017)
Depending on the scholarship, there are application conditions in place, such as school year, nationality, enrollment status, research field, and others. Individuals who do not meet these application conditions cannot apply. The month in which applications begin is an approximation. Scholarship amounts and eligibility may be subject to change. Furthermore, scholarships may not accept applications, depending on the year.
