Do you wanna give it a try??
I believe quite a number of my readers are still students. I'm not sure how many of you are interested to study in Japan... However, study in Japan has been quoted as very expensive. In fact, many people decided just to forget about it due to the very high living expenses and school fees involve. It's true that no money, you can't survive in Japan... However, there's a way for you to not even worry about money while enjoying your study and life in Japan. :) For FREE!!
This is how...
The Embassy of Japan started to open the application for the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho:MEXT) Scholarships for the academic year 2005/2006 from 28th February 2005 until 1 April 2005 (Friday), before 4pm Malaysia time.
Malaysian nationals who would like to pursue their studies in Japan are invited to apply for the scholarship. During the term of the scholarship, monthly allowances of approximately 135,000 yen (~RM4800) will be given to undergraduate and Japanese studies grantee, and 175,000 yen (~RM6300) to postgraduate and teacher training grantee (amount are subject to change). Fees of the entrance examination, matriculation and tuition at universities will be exempted. A round-trip airplane ticket is also provided.
The application is divided into :
Category for undergraduate studies. Applicatants must from seventeen (17) to twenty-two (22) years old as of 1 April, 2005 (i.e. born between 2 April, 1983 and 1 April, 1988). For downloading the application form for undergraduate category, please click here.
Category for postgraduate studies. Applicants must be under 35 years of age as of 1st April 2006 (i.e. born on or after 2nd April 1971). For downloading the application form for postgraduate category, please click here.
It might be a strong competition between all applicants, but you would never know if the destiny is meant to be yours if you don't give any try. Would you dare to open the chocolate box to see what will you get inside? ;)
Among all the scholarships, why Fish Fish personally recommend this one is because this is one of the best you can get in Japan. Not only the benefits you would get from the scholarship itself... but the privileges you would get as being a student in Japan. Study in Japan is enjoyable, but working in Japan is stressful...
This Sakura Land sound somewhat mistery to you? Come to see the pros and cons for yourself then. :) Guddo Lakku!!
