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 $1700 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.
To be eligible for the JJ/WBGSP, applicants must meet the following criteria:
To apply for the JJ/WBGSP through this partnership program, you must first apply for admission to the MPA/ID Program. If you have already submitted an application to the MPA/ID Program and believe you may be eligible for the JJ/WBGSP scholarship, please fill out the Statement of Eligibility and return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the MPA/ID Program has a partnership relationship with the JJ/WBGSP, it is not necessary for MPA/ID applicants to apply to the JJ/WBGSP under the regular program. The MPA/ID Program will submit the names of admitted candidates who meet the scholarship eligibility requirements directly to the JJ/WBGSP Secretariat.
