Some private organizations and scholarship foundations require students to apply through the ILO or GSFS to provide information and handle completed applications. In this case, the GSFS nominates students to the University. The University of Tokyo then determines successful nominees through designated quotas, and nominates these candidates to the private organizations on their behalf.

Please bear in mind that a University recommendation does not guarantee the receival of a scholarship. All final decisions rest with the organization providing the scholarship. Check the ILO website regularly and apply for any suitable scholarship program. Note that most scholarship programs do not allow students to receive funding from multiple organizations, so you should carefully consider to which scholarship you want to apply.


Please be aware,

If you are selected as a nominee by the GSFS or the University of Tokyo, then we will not be able to nominate you as a candidate for any other scholarship program. The Universityof Tokyo hopes that all candidates realize that declining a scholarship may very well have adverse effects on the relationship between scholarship organizations and the University. Therefore, we strongly caution all applicants NOT to decline any scholarship offer once received.
