Korea and Japan are the countries that have become popular choices in recent years. However, there are not many scholarship options when you decide to go to Korea and Japan. But it doesn’t mean that you can not apply to universities in these countries.

I have researched for scholarships in all important countries that have good education systems. For Korea and Japan as well, I came across some scholarships that are actually good - 


  • Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship (Japan)
  • Monbukagakusho Honors Scholarship for Privately-financed International Students (Japan)
  • The Great Wall Programme (Korea)
  • Schwarzman Scholarship (Korea)

The Japanese Government Scholarship is awarded to students with a recommendation. Like you have to get word from a government body or your professor etc. The other three are basically merit-based. You have to perform better than others if you want these scholarships. Apart from these ones, you always have scholarships that are offered by the university itself like the ‘University of Tokyo Fellowship.’

And you can also look into - 

International Postgraduate Scholarship – Japan and South Korea

The international postgraduate scholarship for Japan & South Korea is a merit-based scholarship that is awarded for outstanding academic performances. To get this scholarship you have to meet academic merit and a 250-word statement. It covers a good amount of your finances and can be very beneficial.

To avail, you basically need to visit the National Scholarship Portal which is administered by the government. There you'll be asked to create an account and put your details. Through draft saving, you will get notified of what scholarship you are eligible for. It's not that hard and can be completed very easily.

Do you also have any university preferences? If you are still not done with your selection process, let me help you. You can share your profile details and we will together see which universities are better for you considering your academic records and scholarship options.
