Meiji University International Students Incentive Scholarship Program.

Meiji University International Student Incentive Scholarship Program is a scholarship to provide opportunity to study at Meiji University for young, competent students with financial difficulty from target countries/regions. Students honored with this scholarship are expected to take part in strengthening the relationship between Japan and their home country.

More Details

Meiji University was founded in January 1881 as the Meiji Law School by a group of young lawyers barely in their 30’s. It was an era characterized by Japan’s urgent need to develop as a modern independent nation. Continuing its growth without ever ceasing to ring the chimes of liberty, Meiji University has expanded as one of the prominent private universities of Japan, celebrating its 130th anniversary in 2011.

Meiji University is committed to fostering students who satisfy the requirements of “austerity and sturdiness”, “creation of new intellect” and “needs of the times”.

This program is designed to support promising students with high academic motivation from overseas who can contribute to the advancement and globalization of Meiji University’s education and research, and to nurture people who will be able to succeed in the international arena.
