The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation administers two Western Australian Government Japanese studies scholarships. The Japanese Studies Scholarship was introduced in 1972 to recognise the importance of Japan in Western Australian business and trade. In 1981 the Hyogo Prefecture Japanese Studies Scholarship was introduced to recognise the Sister-State relationship between the State and Hyogo Prefecture.
The scholarships provide promising students or graduates, who are proficient in the Japanese language, with the opportunity to spend up to one year studying at a university in Japan.
It is a goal of the Western Australian Government that scholarship recipients will help to strengthen professional ties between Japan and Western Australia.
APPLICATIONS FOR BOTH SCHOLARSHIPS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED.
At present, safe international travel has been significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. With student safety a priority, the Japanese Studies Scholarship Committee has decided to postpone the Japanese Studies Scholarships application process for Semester 1, 2021.
Please see the postponement notice for more information.
