Caution against Suspicious Announcements on the Scholarship


According to the reports from the embassies of Japan in African countries, unidentifiable groups distribute suspicious announcements on the governmental scholarship of Japan by e-mail, or through the websites. There are some incidences in which payment of commission is requested for "application for the scholarship".


The Embassy reconfirms that the application for Japanese Governmental Scholarship is available only directly through the embassies, consulates of Japan abroad and Japanese universities. Besides, upon the application, the Government of Japan never requests for any commission.


Please be cautioned against such suspicious announcements on the scholarships. To know more about the scholarship, you can contact to Embassies and Consulates of Japan.
