Instruction  

3. Precautions


1. For applicants outside Japan, please ask someone in Japan to act as a domestic proxy to submit your application in your place during the application period.
    In that case, please make sure that the proxy attaches his/her identification and a proxy letter (with your signature).
    We cannot accept the application documents directly from overseas.

2. Once the application is submitted, the payment of the relevant fee will be deferred until the results are determined. Please note that eligibility will be revoked if an applicant pays them before the results are determined.

3. Applicants who submitted applications for both the first and second half of 2021 during the application period for the first half do not have to apply for the second half again. 
    However, students to whom any of the following conditions apply must resubmit their applications during the period for the second half.

  • Cases in which the information (family, study or household budget) provided in the application on April 1 has changed by October 1.
  • Cases where students have changed programs in October.
    (example: cases where the applicant completes the Master's program in September, and enters the Doctorate program in October)
  • Cases where students were expected to graduate or complete the program but are still enrolled beyond the program duration.

4. In the case that applications for both the first and second half are submitted together, selection results will be determined for each half separately. Therefore, even if the application or exemption is approved, the result for the second half will not necessarily be the same. Please confirm the selection result for the second half as well.
