Students at the doctoral level who have no other sources of funding are qualified to receive research assistantships provided directly by the Primate Research Institute of Kyoto University.
A limited number of scholarships are available for those wishing to study at Kyoto University. It should be noted, however, that the selection processes for the scholarships are very competitive, and in most cases applicants are only accepted after entrance to the university.
It is generally necessary, therefore, to have sufficient financial resources prior to entering Kyoto University. For information on scholarships, please visit the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) website (http://www.jasso.go.jp/index_e.html) and click Study in Japan » Scholarships » Scholarships for International Students in Japan
* Currently, international students at the Primate Research Institute are being funded by Monbukagakusho Scholarships (both regular and Honors programs), JSPS Research Fellowships for Young Scientists, as well as private foundations such as the Mitsubishi Corporation Scholarship.
