[Undergraduate, Graduate, and Exchange Program] List Of Fully Funded Scholarships for Study in Japan in 2021 for International Students

 In Japan, many scholarships have been provided for international students from various organizations.
However, the qualifications and amounts greatly differ among them. Most of the scholarships are intended for international students studying at universities and colleges in Japan. Scholarships where you can apply from abroad before coming to Japan are very few. A scholarship cannot maintain your life as an international student in Japan; it can only serve as a supplement for expenses. Please understand contents of scholarship systems, and consider a reasonable plan for studying in Japan.
