Type 1 : Scholarships that applicants should apply by "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application System"
This type of scholarships has limitation of number of applicants for each university, so Gifu University selects applicants to be recommended. Now accepting applications for 2018-2019.

We provide the information of "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application" every July of the previous year, so those who want to apply for private scholarship type 1, apply for the system previously.
