(4) Private Scholarships

 Private foundations offer scholarship to international students (Hereinafter; private scholarships). Private scholarship can be divided into following 2 types.

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.

 In Gifu University, only those who applied to "The Privately Financed International Student Scholarship Candidates Application" can be selected as applicants to be recommended for this type of scholarships. 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. Here is the list of scholarship type 1.
