In general. there are a lot of scholarships offered between January and April, and from August to October, so please pay close attention during these periods of time.
However, each organization that offers scholarships has their own eligibility requirements and selection criteria, as well as a limited number of slots available for disbursement. Therefore, even if you meet the conditions, there is no guarantee that you will win a scholarship. For more details, please inquire directly to the Scholarship Officer of the International Student Services Division of the International Center.
