    (Monbukagakusho: MEXT Scholarship Program)

    The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT; in Japanese "Monbukagakusho") of Japan offers Tanzanian students 4 types of scholarship to study at Japanese universities or colleges: Research students, Undergraduate Students, Specialized Training College Students and Japanese Studies Students.

    Unfortunately, for the categories "Undergraduate Students" and "Specialized Training College Students", no Tanzanian student has passed the screening for several years. Different from "Research Students" where three seats are reserved every year for Tanzanian students, applicants for the categories "Undergraduate Students" and "Specialized Training College Students" have to go through the competition with the students from all over the world. We strongly wish that young candidates will break through this situation in the near future and enjoy their campus life in Japan.
