Apply for top 2015 scholarships and financial aid positions before application deadlines. The Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (JCCI) Singapore Foundation, in cooperation with Waseda University in Japan, set up a one-year (September 2016 to July 2017) scholarship program at the School of International Liberal Studies for undergraduates. The Foundation hopes to provide young Singaporeans an opportunity to study in Japan through this program. Also, it wishes to promote further exchanges and cooperation between Singapore and Japan. The successful candidate is thus expected to play the role of a diplomat with the task of strengthening bilateral relations between the two nations during and after the scholarship programme. The scholarship program was established in 1995 to commemorate Singapore’s 30th Year of National Independence and the 5th Anniversary of JCCI Singapore Foundation. The application deadline is 4 September 2015.
The duration of the scholarship is one year from September 2016 to July 2017. The Foundation provides full sponsorship up to a maximum of S$50,000 which includes a two-way air ticket, tuition fees, daily expenses, accommodations and transportation allowances. There is no bond attached to the scholarship. The selected candidate will have to stay in the Dormitory arranged by Waseda University and JCCI.
