Characteristics of INPEX SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION
We select our Indonesian Scholarship Students from applicants while they are still residing in Indonesia. Many other Japanese scholarship foundations, conversely, choose their students from the applicants who are already living or studying in Japan.
We ask national research centers such as LIPI (Indonesian Institute of Sciences) and the main universities to distribute our “ANNOUNCEMENT OF SCHOLARSHIPS” and “APPLICATION FORM FOR SCHOLARSHIPS” and to encourage qualified youths to apply for our scholarships.
Our Foundation assists a successful Indonesian candidate to obtain a student visa while he/she is still in Indonesia, and assists to secure lodgings when he/she arrives in Japan.
Our Scholarship covers a fixed monthly amount for living expenses, commuting pass to and from the place of study, and admission and tuition expenses for Japanese language schools and Japanese universities.
Foreign students probably know that an increasing number of graduate schools in Japan are providing classes in English language, however, the importance of studying Japanese language should not be ignored. Therefore our Foundation encourages and supports Indonesian students to study Japanese language.
For Japanese Scholarship Students, our Foundation has, since its inception, consistently assisted the students with their studies exclusively in Indonesia.
