Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Scholarship Foundation | Philippine Scholarship

Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Scholarship

The Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Scholarship is a grant that students need not repay. The scholars are allowed to receive scholarship or grants from the other institutions or foundations concurrently. The duration of the scholarship is the shortest period of regular enrollment with the university where the student studies, starting from the first semester of the school year in which the student has been adopted by the foundation.

 

The Foundation helps students through personal interviews, holding exchange meetings, issuing the annual report “Scholarship” in order for students to maintain close exchange among themselves or with members of the Foundation and to have opportunities to improve themselves.

 

The Foundation, believing it important for students to meet people, not only supports scholarship students financially, but also hosts activities beneficial to students, helping them to make good use of time for their study and research or to play active roles in society in the future.

 

The Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Scholarship Foundation was established in November 1953, by sole endowments of the former The Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation (currently: Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation) and continues its activities of grant programs for scholarship through nominated universities throughout Japan in order to contribute to the development of industries and the improvement and progress of society and culture in our country.

 

Please note that the foundation does not accept applications directly from the candidates. You will be accepted from the application for scholarship you submitted from their nominated or partner universities. Around mid-March, the foundation sends application documents to the student affairs offices of each partner university, so it is best that you inquire from the university you would like to enroll or are currently enrolled.
