Government Scholarships

Each year, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport, Science, and Technology (Monbukagakusho) offers scholarships to international students, providing hundreds with the opportunity to live and study in Japan. At the end of March, 2015, some 102,000 students from approximately 160 countries and regions around the world have studied in Japan under the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho) Scholarship program established in 1954. As of May 1, 2015, there were 9,223 foreign students studying in Japan as Japanese government scholars.

The Consulate-General of Japan in Houston offers three types of Monbukagakusho scholarships available to U.S. students.
