Scholarship and Financial Support

1. Scholarship and student loan

More than 80 percent of international students in Toyohashi Tech receive some kind of scholarships, and concentrate on their study and research.
International applicants are able to apply Japanese Government Scholarship, JICA scholarship, JDS program, Aichi Scholarship program before coming to Japan. International students of Toyohashi Tech are also able to apply private-funded scholarship after coming to Japan. However, the scholarships are not sufficient for all international students. We recommend international students to prepare necessary funding themselves. Nowadays, more and more international students get their scholarships in their countries. One reason of high success ratio of scholarship is, of course, our international students are very much motivated and talented, and second reason is that, our university is very unique national university.
