Would be big if true - I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens in May.So does this mean MEXT students can be an exception when it comes to entering Japan? (Because as far as I know no other students have been able to receive new visas)
Honestly though I am not worried any more at this point. I wanted the scholarship because it was a chance to go back to a subject I never had the chance to publish on in my first post-grad job; not some particular fascination with Japan. If this all falls through we can be happy that we got through a tough selection process, and can get on with other things. I do feel more sorry for the people who really had this dream of living in Japan for a few years because this does put all that in doubt for them.
Apply for the Korean govt scholarship too But in all seriousness I would suggest you go and read the Transenz blog - Khalid70 introduced me to it here and I wish I had known about it before applying; really lays everything out nice and clearly.I'm Applying for 2022 any help/tips from those who have already won will be appreciated.
