Yes, That is what I meant. (often universities "recruit" from universities that they have academic agreements with…
I am not comfortable saying my University haha. But I got accepted in Entrance examination and will be recommended to Mext scholarship. How many percentage the chance to be accepted in MEXT scholarship ( I suspect it is PGP but It is not listed in the official list of PGP in MEXT website so I am not sure :):):):))

Congratulations

Generally speaking once your university recommend you for the MEXT scholarship, you will be accepted by MEXT. It’s just a matter of paperwork because MEXT has set aside a specified number of scholarships for each Japanese university which the Japanese universities have already applied for. (they apply to MEXT for a certain number of scholarship slots, and are accepted or rejected based upon their plan for how to use these scholarship slots. These days MEXT Is a little bit more severe/strict on the Japanese universities, and the scholarships are less common or fewer in number than before, but once you were recommended by your Japanese host university that means that they are using one of their alloted slots for you and it should be a matter of just MEXT receiving the documents and approving themBut the universe he will not tell you that you are approved until all the documents have been officially approved. But sometimes professors will tell you unofficially that you should get the scholarship it depends on the professor.

So for all intensive purposes you should be OK.


I hope that helps

Thank you!!. I have question.... right now I am working as R.A in another lab/ other country (but when I apply in their university I haven't starting working as R.A) does it will affect my chances? (contract is till July) and currently as you said it is not 100% sure for MEXT. It is okay to apply for other scholarship in another country? (My boss will recommend me so the chances to get this is slightly higher)

Hi everyone!
I applied for Handai (Osaka Univ.) and I haven't heard anything from them since I did my interview session in March. Has anyone got any feedback from them?

Is Pledge form is same as ''notice of admittance'' and confirming you want to enter their university?

I am already a candidate for Mext scholarship and the last update I have in my department they already in the process for recommend me as Mext scholar. But I didn't sign any pledge form. :/

Hi there!
Has anyone received the results from university screening? I applied for Kyoto university.
Hi! I also applied for Kyoto University. I haven't received the results from Kyoto University. However, my proposed professor told me that I was selected as one of candidates to report to the MEXT and I had to sign the pledge form. Did you do that too?

As I heard from my lecturer who got the MEXT scholarship, they only notify applicants in February (announcement in grad school) and June (final result)

Btw, I applied for the PGP scholarship, not the general

@RinARina @ardiomi1121 I received official nomination for MEXT by SOKENDAI yesterday
Wow, that's great!
At what time that precisely you received the notification of acceptance from your Professor?

I have just recently told by my Sensei that I've been nominated for MEXT last Sunday. And yet I'm waiting for the official announcement.

It was the final acceptance from the University I received yesterday.
I will now wait for MEXT final acceptance in June.

I've been told that my graduate school nominated me for PGP as well. But I don't know what the pledge form is. This fact makes me really anxious....
Same as you, they notified me in February. I didn't know that there are more options than General Program. So, I've been waiting for University results. Later my graduate school assured me that I need to wait until June when the final results will be announced.
Which graduate school you applied for?

Here is a form that I mentioned before. My prospective professor also told me to wait until June for the final results. However, I'm worried too because the student affairs haven't notified me about the university result Screenshot_20210417-154200.png

Student affairs said that I had to sign this form to confirm my intention to enroll in the Master program

As I understood, the PGP does not require university results. University formally recommends students highlighted by the graduate school, and that's it. I haven't filled such a form, but we discussed with the student affairs assistant that I can't apply for another scholarship until the final results anointment. BTW, I'm going for biostudies.
This process literally takes too much time, and waiting is so exhausting. In June, the deadline for another scholarship will pass. Therefore, I'm so worried that MEXT will reject me, and I'll not have options.
