Japan Announces Scholarships for Qatari Students
At a press conference held yesterday at the Supreme Education Council’s Higher Education Institute, Japanese Ambassador Kenjiro Monji said that despite facing great challenges after the Great East Japan earthquake, Japan has been making steady progress toward reconstruction.
“Japan is fully ready to welcome more foreign students to study in Japan, including Qatari students. We believe that those who study in Japan will contribute to the development of their respective fields in Qatar by using their experience of studying in Japan and help promote understanding of Japanese education, culture, tradition and way of life in Qatar, and eventually creating more scope of co-operation between Japan and Qatar.”
Interested candidates have until June 13 to apply for the scholarship programme.
Candidates from Qatar will be selected by the Joint Selection Committee comprising officials from the SEC, Qatar University and embassy of Japan through document screening, written examination and interview process.
The Scholarship Expert of Scholarship Office Alawi Balghaith /Higher Education Institute, SEC and Dr Mariam Ali al-Ma’adeed, associate professor and director of the Centre for Advanced Materials Centre at Qatar University, are among the members of the Joint Selection Committee.
The names of selected candidates will be recommended to the MEXT of Japan for the final screening.
