Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship Programs (Embassy Recommendation)


COVID-19 Impact on Scholarship Round in 2022
As we are all well aware, COVID-19 has made international travel and forward planning considerably difficult.
MEXT informs applicants that under some circumstances such as travel restrictions or curfews, there remains the possibility that the selection process will be cancelled or that applicants will not be able to come to Japan even after being selected as scholarship students.

Under the scholarship programme of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), the Japanese Government will offer four types of scholarship for Hong Kong and Macau students wishing to pursue their studies at a Japanese university or Specialized Training College.


Applicants must be residents of Hong Kong/Macau and hold a Hong Kong/Macau SAR Passport/Document of Identity (DI). If you do not fulfil these requirements, please contact the Embassy/Consulate of Japan in your home country for details on how to apply for a scholarship. You can find the list of Japanese embassies/consulates overseas at

The scholarship covers
1. Entrance fees and full tuition
2. Monthly allowance
3. Round-trip flight between Hong Kong and Japan
