Privately-financed international Students

For privately-financed International Students, Tottori University accepts “Scholarship Applications From” twice a year - in March for the first semester, and in September for the second semester of the Academic Year.

Tottori University will decide on Scholarship Application Forms submitted by privately-financed students using a recommendation ranking-based system. Then, when scholarship foundations ask Tottori University to recommend certain international students as potential scholarship recipients during the semester of the academic year, the University will recommend students from the upper part of the ranking list to those scholarship foundations after confirming students’ need for financial support. (Note: You will be unable to receive any scholarships if you do not submit this form.) 

For Privately-financed students who would like to apply for scholarships, we ask that you please submit the Scholarship Application Form during the application period. The application period is posted on the IAD website. ※(Students in Yonago region, application forms are available at the Gakusei-kakari of the Faculty of Medicine.)
