Graduate Studies Scholarship Available to Developing Country Nationals

Applications to the the Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJWBGSP) open tomorrow, February 22, 2018. This scholarship offers tuition, a monthly living stipend, round-trip airfare, health insurance, and a travel allowance.

The program is open to anyone from “developing countries with professional experience and a history of supporting their countries’ development efforts who are applying to a master degree program in a development-related topic.” There is a list of eligibility criteria, which you can view here. One big requirement: obtaining a master’s degree from a preferred or partner institution, Lucky enough, SIPA is one of those schools!

The JJWBGSP website gives a detailed list of scholarship benefits and requirements, as well as steps applicants can take before applying. You can also check out the scholarship flyer below. And be sure to mark the April 12th deadline in your calendars.
