Characteristics of INPEX SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION

we select our lndonesian scholarship students from applicants residing in lndonesia


while many other Japanese scholarship foundations choose their students from the
applicants who are already living or studying in Japan.
We ask national research centers such as LlPl (lndonesian lnstitute of Sciences) and
the main universities to dishibute ouT "ANNOUNCEMENT OF SCHOLARSHIPS" and
'APPLICATION FORM FOR SCHOLARSHIPS" and to encourage qualified youths to apply
for our scholarships.
lnternational students should know that an increasing number of graduate schools in
Japan are providing classes in the English language, however, the importance of studying
Japanese language should not be ignored.
Our Foundation assists a successful lndonesian candidate to obtain a student visa while
he/she is still in lndonesia, and to secure lodgings when he/she arrives in Japan.
Our scholarship covers not only a fixed monthly amount for living expenses and
commuting pass to and from the place of study but also admission and tuition expenses for

Japanese language schools and Japanese universities.


Regarding Japanese students, our Foundation has, since its inception, consistently
assisted Japanese scholarship students with their studies in lndonesia.
