There are 2 types of scholarships, namely, (1) those that can be applied for before coming to Japan, and (2) those that can be applied for after coming to Japan and entering a school.
With that said, however, the number of scholarships that can be applied for after entering a school in Japan far outnumber the former.
There are also numerous organizations in Hiroshima Prefecture that offer scholarships to international students.
Of these, the Hiroshima International Center (a public interest incorporated foundation) international student scholarship is made possible through funds collected from the center, corporations, and individual residents of Hiroshima Prefecture, and scholarship funds are provided to 66 international students studying within the prefecture (current as of the 2022 academic year).
For the most part, such students apply for this scholarship through the schools that they are currently attending.
We recommend that you consult with the office staff responsible for international students at your school immediately upon entering your school.
