– Under the guidance of the host professor, a student should join/start a research project related to on-going global issues, including food and natural resources issues and environmental and pollution issues.
– It is preferable to make a report and present it at a weekly-(or maybe monthly) seminar where several research advisors (host professors of this program) may attend.
– TUAT will try to offer some Japanese language courses, special for this program.
– The coordinator is now (June 2011) arranging six rooms at TUAT International Student Dormitory, which is good moneywise comparing the other accommodation facilities.

TUAT with its three core “fields” of Engineering, Agriculture, and Veterinary science, is a unique university. Holding to the fundamental principles of contributing to the development of science and technology in harmony with society and the natural environment, TUAT trains human resources who address interrelated issues through free thought-based academic research in agriculture , engineering and integrated fields.

This scholarship is available for qualified international students accepted by project leaders at Japanese universities, graduate schools, or technical colleges under each university’s student exchange agreement or its equivalent memorandum of understanding, on a short-stay basis for up to three months.

– This scholarship program is funded by MEXT and administered by JASSO (Japan Student Service Organization.)
– Up to 3 months during the 2011-2012 academic year (July 2011- March 2012)
