There are various types of scholarships for international students, AGU’s own scholarship system and extracurricular scholarships.
Academic Fees and Scholarships Division, Student Affairs and Welfare Department (Aoyama campus)/Student Affairs and Welfare Division (Sagamihara campus) mainly handle scholarships at AGU, and the International Center searches for students for some of the scholarships. Application and qualification depend on the scholarships/year.
Every year, approximately 50% of undergraduate and 70% of graduate-international students receive some kind of scholarship, including AGU Industry-University Collaborative Global Scholarship.
The following scholarships are established by private educational institutions (scholarship foundations, etc.) with various purposes/aims.
The Academic Fees and Scholarships Division (Aoyama campus) / Student Affairs and Welfare Division (Sagamihara campus) handles a number of scholarships for degree-seeking international students offered by external organization, such as private foundations and companies. Some of them requires the registration process at Academic Fees and Scholarships Division, in order to apply. For more information, students should refer to "Financial Aid" page on AGU Student Portal Site.
International students whose tuitions are paid for by national expenses/a foreign government/scholarship organizations cannot apply for the internal scholarships. Please confirm the conditions for application with each scholarships as it depends on which college/graduate school and year you belong to.
In principle, Aoyama Gakuin University will accept applications from privately financed international students after entering the university. However, it is difficult to receive scholarships immediately after enrollment, so it is required to secure the necessary expenses to study abroad by yourself.
With a purpose of supporting students to keep studying, AGU provides a system for international students with a student status of residence to receive tuition exemption during the period they need to take a leave of absence due to military service in their home country (1 time only during enrollment in AGU, maximum for 2 years).
If you wish to apply a leave of absence and tuition exemption due to military service, please consult with the International Center.
