Hello everyone, I tried looking around for a similar topic for this year's applications but couldn't find! Has anyone else here applied for the scholarship this year? In my country, as I think in most cases, the selections were delayed 2/3 months and the deadline to submit the application for research student just passed last week so now the long waiting begins. In my embassy they said they were going to restrict the number of people going to the written tests due to distancing rules and I was wondering if it was the same in other countries too and if you think they will cut budgets further this year... also I just wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing the same anxious waiting as me :eek:

In Colombia the application deadline is September 9th. I am still preparing the application...and trying not to get too anxious about it. They did not mention anything regarding the number of people selected to present to written text. I will let you know as soon as I get news . Best of luck!

Oh, so it's even later than in my country, I thought we were the latest ones as usual...did you have any trouble with the field of study and research plan? I feel like it's the most important document in the application but the examples on the internet of successful applicants are all so different from each other that I couldn't really figure out how the right structure should be or if the topic I have chosen is even relevant or not... I guess I will just have to wait the first screening results to find out :cry:

I am assuming the reason why is because the number of applicants isn't really that high. We are a very small country with a population of 2 Million

In Brazil there will be no written tests, the scholarships will be evaluated by the national exam scores (ENEM). To prove a certain influence of the English language and basic knowledge of Japanese, it will be necessary to test the proficiency of both languages. Well, I would prefer it to be the old model. Written test. Unfortunately, this pandemic broke my entire schedule. I will leave it to try in 2021.

I am sorry for my late reply. YES!! absolutely! I had so many troubles trying to figure out how to construct a solid "field of study" document. I was completely lost! should I add objectives, research questions, references? or should I overlook those parts? In my country, they gave us a limited number of pages (no more than 2) but I had to add an extra page for the study plan and the references. I wrote to some many people trying to figure out how to do it...in the end, I just focused on doing something professional and coherent for me. And then I had to gather all the documents they required, and the letters and the MEXT application form (that one was huge)!! Now I am happy that I just sent it. Hope everything is fine !! we´ll see.
