Opportunity type: 
To apply for the Joint Japan World Bank Graduate Scholarships Programme (JJ/WBGSP) you must be a developing country national, not be a dual citizen of any developed country, hold a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent university degree) earned before 2012, and have at least three years of development-related experience since earning a Bachelor’s degree. Most importantly, you must commit to returning home to your country on graduation in order to use your enhanced knowledge and skills towards your community’s, country’s or region’s development. Those receiving a scholarship are barred from working at the World Bank Group for three years following graduation from the preferred master’s programme.
If you think you fit our profile then take a look below at the Application Guidelines complete list of eligibility requirements, and the list of preferred masters programmes and partner masters programmes associated with this scholarship.

There are two ways citizens of developing countries can apply for this scholarship:
  • For scholarships to one of our partner masters programmes, please first apply to at least one of our partner university masters programmes. The university will send the JJ/WBGSP Secretariat a short list of eligible candidates that have been accepted by the partner programme, and the JJ/WBGSP Steering Committee will award scholarships to a subset of the short-listed applicants;
  • For scholarships to one of our preferred masters programs, you need to apply to the university to get accepted into the program and also apply directly to JJ/WBGSP for the scholarship.
To begin the web-based application process for a scholarship to one of our preferred master’s programmes, we recommend that you:
