What types of scholarships are available?

Scholarships are very competitive; approximately 30 percent of Monash exchange students going to Japan receive the AIEJ Scholarship, Japanese Studies Scholarships, or a host university scholarship.

Please note that the scholarships listed here are only those whose applications are organised by the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics as part of our exchange program. Information about many other scholarships, to both Japan and elsewhere, is available in the Scholarships Bulletin, which is a publication of the Monash Research Graduate School.

The scholarships listed below have been offered in the past, but we cannot guarantee that they will always be offered.

The following chart shows the types of scholarships and what each scholarship includes:
