Japanese Studies Scholarships, hosted by the Seizan Fukami Fund

Curtin's Department of Asian Languages is pleased to offer undergraduate/honours/postgraduate scholarships for students intending to undertake Japanese studies in WA.

Undergraduate scholarship

Each undergraduate scholarship is for $5,000 per annum for full-time study over three years (or four years for a student in a double degree program). The scholarships may be used to cover Commonwealth Supported course fees, books and materials, and other costs related to study at the University.

Honours / Postgraduate scholarship

Each scholarship is for a total of $6,000 (Honours) or $7,000 (Masters and PhD) for full-time study for a period leading to the completion of the relevant degree at Curtin (one year honours, two years masters, three years PhD).

The application process

Applicants for a scholarship should submit curriculum vitae, a passport-sized photograph, a copy of their academic record, three referees, and a statement (maximum of two pages) of why they like studying or would like to study Asian Cultures & Languages at Curtin and how they propose to use Japanese in their career.

Honours and Postgraduate Scholarship applicants should also submit their research proposal and the names and addresses of two referees who may be approached for academic references. One of these should be able to comment on the applicant's proficiency in Japanese.

For undergraduate scholarship applicants currently in Year 12, the application should be accompanied by the names of two teachers/school principal, one of whom should be a Japanese language teacher, who may be approached for a reference.
