Japan Scholarship Program (JSP)
What is the JSP?
The JSP was established in April 1988 to provide an opportunity for qualified citizens of ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs) to undertake post-graduate studies in economics, management, science and technology, and other development-related fields at participating academic institutions in the Asian and Pacific Region.
Who is eligible to join the program?
The program is open to nationals of an ADB borrowing member country who have gained admission to an approved MA/PhD course at an academic institution. Candidates should not be more than 35 years old, in good health, with a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent with superior academic record. The candidate should agree to return to his/her home country after completion of studies under the Program.
What does the scholarship cover?
The JSP covers full tuition fees, a monthly allowance for expenses, housing, books and instructional materials, medical insurance and travel expenses. For scholars engaged in research, a special grant may be available for thesis preparation. In special circumstances, computer literacy, preparatory language and other similar courses may be covered under the scholarship.
