The University of Tokyo Foundation for Supporting International Students is a fund designed to financially assist international students through donations made by University of Tokyo employees, alumni, and the general public.
This assistance is provided mainly in the form of condolence money and emergency loans. Condolence money of up to ¥100,000 is paid to students in times of trouble, such as those suffering losses from a disaster or accident, or illness/injury requiring hospitalization for a month or more. Emergency loans of up to ¥200,000 are available to students having difficulty making ends meet, such as those who do not qualify for school fee exemptions but have trouble paying those fees, and those who experience losses from a disaster or accident that severely strain their finances.
Applications for assistance are taken by the administrative office of your Faculty/Graduate School.
