Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program
The JJ/WBGSP provides scholarships for up to two-years to a limited number of Japanese mid-career professionals who are dedicated to the alleviation of poverty and enhanced shared prosperity in developing countries, and who have been admitted to or are currently enrolled in a master’s or PhD graduate degree program outside of Japan and in development-related fields.
After earning their degree, Japanese national scholars are expected to advance their professional career with a keen focus on the alleviation of poverty and enhanced shared prosperity in developing countries.
The 2023 application window for Japanese nationals closed on April 20, 2023. The names of the finalists will be announced early May 2023.
