Scholarships for Privately funded International Students

Every year around July, UEC recruits possible recipients of recommendation scholarships for privately funded students (university-recommendation scholarships). The university recommends that students with excellent academic results who meet application eligibility requirements apply for these scholarship programs. Please note that the number of scholarship students recruited is
very limited and that non-full-time students are rarely recognized as eligible for scholarships. In addition, receiving a recommendation does not necessarily mean that the student will receive a scholarship.

If you are a privately funded student and would like to receive a university-recommendation scholarship, you MUST take the university-recommendation scholarshipin interview test that is conducted every year in September. Students who do not take the interview test are not eligible for university-recommendation scholarships for the following fiscal year.
