The scholarships for the program of Information and Computer Sciences are available for only TWO highly qualified students each year.
Therefore, the selection is highly competitive.
Evaluation of applications will be based on the candidates` scholastic ability and research potential assessed from previous credentials, recommendation letters and the essays of research plan on selected topics.
Short-listed candidates will then be invited to face an Internet-based interview conducted by a panel of three faculty members at a pre-determined time schedule.
The details of this interview will be sent out to short-listed candidates.
The final selection is made based on the performance at the interview.
The two selected candidates will also be asked to fill in and submit some application forms required by The MEXT.
The list of candidates nominated for the scholarship is then recommended to the Ministry for final approval.
