Level of Funding
Scholarships provided through the Japan Foundation for UNU (JFUNU) are based on application selection results. Only applicants that are accepted for enrolment in the UNU-IAS PhD in Sustainability Science programme can be considered as candidates for this scholarship. There is no separate application form for the scholarship as it is a part of the online application for admission. Interested applicants must provide necessary information and documents for the scholarship together with the required documents for admission to the PhD degree programme. The JFUNU scholarship provides a monthly allowance of 150,000 JPY for living expenses for a maximum of 36 months. However, travel costs to and from Japan, visa handling fees, and health/accident insurance costs must be covered by the student. The tuition fees are fully waived for the scholarship recipients. Applicants must be from developing countries who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance.
