  • Teacher Training Scholarship
  • Japanese Studies Scholarship
  • Undergraduate (Scholarship)
  • Research Scholarship (may lead to a Master's degree or a Ph.D.)
  • Professional Training School (Senshu-Gakko) Scholarship
  • College of Technology Scholarship

If you are interested, you have to act now because the deadline of applications for batch 2011 is on May 28, 2010 (Friday).  For more information, please visit or call the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, or read their press release.
