The Graduate School of Science is trying to obtain scholarships supported by the Japanese government. Whether the scholarships are available or not will be known only in March 2014. If such an attempt is successful, the amount of 131,000 Japanese Yen per month will be provided for two years to Master students and for three years to PhD students. Up to eight scholarships (in total, shared between Master and PhD students) will be provided to IPC students newly enrolled in October 2014. The recipients of the scholarships will be selected on the basis of the total score of the entrance examination (previous achievements, GRE or IPC examination, and interview).
After enrolling and beginning their studies at Osaka University, IPC students can apply to other scholarships. Additional scholarships may be obtained, for example, from the Graduate School of Science of Osaka University or from private organizations (see links to the left) and local governments. Many graduate students also complement their income by working as research assistants (for PhD students) or teaching assistants (for Master students) at Osaka University (up to 100,000 yen/month). However, these scholarships are competitive because the financial resources are limited.
