The Japan Information Center is delighted to announce that applications for the 2014 Japanese Government MEXT Research Student Scholarship are now available! This scholarship provides for college graduates to conduct an independent research project at a university in Japan under the supervision of a professor for 18 to 24 months. Any field of study is eligible for the scholarship, but applicants must find a professor at a Japanese university willing to supervise their research. The application is currently available online under the "Research" header: http://www.chicago.us.emb-japan.go.jp/JIC/monbusho.html. Applications are due on Friday, June 7. Those who pass the initial application screening will be asked to sit for an interview and Japanese language exam in mid-July. Final selection will come from MEXT in February, with scholarship recipients departing for Japan in April or September of 2014.
