Scholarship awards include:
Return air transportation (economy class) from current residence to Fukuoka, Japan.
Accommodation during the conference.
A daily allowance for miscellaneous expenses.
Scholarship recipients are expected to pay for their own expenses from their home to the nearest airport.
Arrangements for air transportation (e-tickets) will be made by the scholarship committee on behalf of the awardees. Recipients are expected to return to their point of departure within a period of 10 days from the time that they left.
Criteria for scholarships:
Each recipient must
