Remarks - Submission of "Request for Scholarship Continuation"
Students wishing to continue receiving scholarships from the Japan Student Services Organization are required to submit "Request for Scholarship Continuation" handed out in December every year within the time limit set by the organization. Students failing to do so will forfeit their scholarship eligibility and the organization will stop providing their scholarships.
- Repayment of Scholarship
Our scholarships are provided in the form of a loan; the recipients of scholarships are required to repay the loan after graduation because the reimbursement will be used as funds for scholarship loans to other students. If the scholarship recipients fall ill, continue studying or have other valid reasons for not being able to repay their loans, they may be granted a moratorium or an exemption upon application.
