The Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP), in partnership with the MPA/ID Program, awards eight scholarships per year to citizens of World Bank member borrower countries. These scholarships provide full tuition, a stipend of approximately $1,500 per month, and round trip airfare. Scholarship recipients are required to return to their home country or to another developing country after they graduate. Scholarship recipients are ineligible for employment at the World Bank Group for a period of three years after graduation.
