There are various scholarships that are available to international students. Prospective international students may choose to first apply for a Japanese government scholarship(No.1) through the Japanese embassy in their respective countries prior to arrival in Japan. This is a long process and competition is keen. For more information, see the link below and check with the Japanese embassy in your country for dates.

 In addition, students have the option to apply for various scholarships(No.2~No.22) after enrollment. Kagawa University International Foundation has several scholarships (80,000 yen or 60,000yen monthly for four student and 20,000 yen monthly for two students) while a range of scholarships are offered by private foundations. Students however, need to be proficient in the Japanese language to stand a chance at winning a scholarship. 

Besides scholarships, students with outstanding academic records coupled with financial difficulties may wish to apply for tuition fee waivers. Our records for the past three years show that about half of our international students applied for the tuition fee waiver in a typical year. Of that, about 80-90% of them succeeded in receiving either full or partial tuition fee waivers. 

In addition, tuition fee deferrals and monthly payment installment schemes are also available.
