INPEX SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION (the Foundation) was established as nonprofit organization in Japan in March
1981 in order to promote mutual understanding, friendship and goodwill between Indonesia and Japan through an
exchange of students by means of scholarship awards.
Commencing in 2022, the FOUNDATION is expanding its focus to include Australia and United Arab Emirates
(UAE). Scholarships will be offered to promising Indonesian, Australian and UAE students who wish to study a
Postgraduate University course in Japan.
We select our Scholarship Students from applicants while they are still residing in the home country. Many
other Japanese scholarship foundations, conversely, choose their students from the applicants who are already
living or studying in Japan.
Our Foundation assists a successful candidate to obtain a student visa while he/she is still in the home
country 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, the
Foundation encourages and supports our scholarship 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. From 2023, in addition to Indonesia, the students want to study
in Australia or the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will also be eligible for scholarships.
