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 ARE NOW CLOSED.
Applicants should ensure they are available to attend a Japanese language proficiency test to be held on 9 August 2019. A short list of candidates will be interviewed by the Scholarship Selection Committee shortly thereafter.
