INPEX SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION was founded as a non-profit organization in Japan on March 26, 1981 donation by then Indonesia Petroleum, Ltd. (now INPEX CORPORATION). It was set up in commemoration of the 15th Anniversary of the company in order to promote mutual understanding, friendship and goodwill between Indonesia and Japan through an exchange of students by means of scholarship awards.
We offer scholarships to promising Indonesia students who wish to pursue a master degree from a university in Japan and Japanese students wishing to study at a university in Indonesia.
We select our Indonesian Scholarship Students from applicants while they are still residing in Indonesia. Many other Japanese scholarship foundations, conversely, choose their students from the applicants who are already living or studying in Japan.
We ask national research centers such as LIPI (Indonesian Institute of Sciences) and the main universities to distribute our “ANNOUNCEMENT OF SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2021” and “APPLICATION FORM FOR SCHOLARSHIPS” and to encourage qualified youths to apply for our scholarships.
Our Foundation assists a successful Indonesian candidate to obtain a student visa while he/she is still in Indonesia, and assists to secure lodgings when he/she arrives in Japan.
Our Scholarship covers a fixed monthly amount for living expenses, commuting pass to and from the place of study, and admission and tuition expenses for Japanese language schools and Japanese universities.
Foreign students probably know that an increasing number of graduate schools in Japan are providing classes in English language, however, the importance of studying Japanese language should not be ignored. Therefore our Foundation encourages and supports Indonesian students to study Japanese language.
For Japanese Scholarship Students, our Foundation has, since its inception, consistently assisted the students with their studies exclusively in Indonesia.
