Unique Financial Support for Doctoral Program Students

Our Unique Financial Support for Doctoral Program Students
Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering offer a financial support for doctoral students.
In this financial support system, in addition to the exemption of student tuitions offered university-wide, the Graduate School of Systems and Engineering uniquely employs students as research assistants (RA), in order to provide exemption or provision of RA honorarium for more than half the amount equivalent to the annual tuition of a student. Except for students who do not meet the qualification requirements, this suport is available for all the candidate students.
* In order to receive this financial support, it is necessary to submit the application required for the exemption of student tuitions offered university-wide, and the application to receive this support by the specified date.
In addition, the following students cannot apply for this financial support.
– Working students who have a constant income, such as students who receive a salary from their place of employment
– Japanese government scholarship students and Research Fellowships for Young Scientists of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS Fellowships) who receive a constant income
– International students of foreign governments who receive an allowance equivalent to the tuition or cost of living
