Launch of Scholarship Program for International Students from Asian Countries2020/12/03

JERA Co., Inc. (“JERA”) has established the JERA Asia Scholarship, a scholarship program for international students from Asian countries studying at universities and graduate schools in Japan.


By providing financial assistance for international students studying in Japan, the JERA Asia Scholarship aims to support the development of talented people who will contribute to the future economic development of Asian countries.


As JERA Chairman Toshihiro Sano said, “We already contribute to economic development in Asian countries through our energy and infrastructure business, and hope that recipients of the newly established JERA Asia Scholarship will go on to play key roles in the future economic development of these countries.”


As part of the JERA Asia Scholarship, JERA will provide, through a sponsored scholarship program at the International University of Japan (“IUJ”), scholarships to students from Asian countries who study there.


Specifically, JERA will provide up to 5 self-financed international students with JPY 150,000 per month for 2 years in addition to entrance and tuition fees. Scholarship recipients will be determined through a screening process of those who have applied for a scholarship when they apply for admission to IUJ. The following is an outline of the scholarship application process for students entering IUJ in 2021.
