Types of scholarships and how to apply

The scholarship is a system that supports tuition and living expenses necessary for entering the university. There are “lending” type to be returned after graduating from university and “benefit” type not requiring return.
Whether or not to return, payment amount, application qualification etc will vary depending on the group. In addition, there are cases where you need to apply while you are in high school, so early information gathering is important.
In addition to the scholarship system, private private students may also have a special scholarship program for those who completed excellent results in the entrance examination. Also, at the public university, there is a “local people’s preferential treatment system” that gives preferential treatment to students from local areas where universities are established, and tuition fee will be lower than those from outside the area.

There are many scholarships that municipalities have set up that require that parents be residents of the municipality. There are also many loan types. Because it is sometimes impossible to combine with the Japan Student Services Organization’s scholarship, it is necessary to investigate well.

How to apply for scholarship
Scholarships of the Japan Student Services Organization are applied through schools (high schools and universities) enrolled.
The point is that there are two types of “recruitment” for booking scholarships to be received after entering high school while “high school entrance to graduate school” to apply after entering university. If you want to receive a scholarship immediately after entrance to the university, you may wish to apply for “reservation hiring”. In addition, recruitment of student status is recruited immediately after entering university, and it is applied through university.
In the case of university’s own scholarship system, there are various cases such as when there is already recruitment as “scholarship” at the time of taking the exam, when payment is decided through application, interview etc. after entering university. In the case of an aspiring school, you should investigate what kind of structure it is.

I have taken a reservation for the scholarship of the Japan Student Services Organization during high school studies. At first we could only have “two kinds / interest”, but after entrance to the university, we found that there was a kind of noninterest-free border through the university. So, once you submit the materials again and submit it, it worked fine.

The monetary side was quite severe due to restructuring of his father. Since scholarship procedure was taken in the second half of high school third grader, we received a scholarship from April earlier and we made a loan with entrance preparation money, but it was nice that we managed to manage it somehow. It costs more money than I am thinking of living alone outside the prefecture.
