Riset-Pro Scholarship Program

Riset-Pro Scholarship Program: For Admission in October 2018



       The application is open to the candidates of Riset-Pro scholarship. The program targets those who wish to pursue a Master’s degree at KU. The program runs for 24 months, depending on the desired degree and the field of study. Applicants will be selected and matched with academic supervisor by the graduate schools at KU, then undergo the final selection by the academic supervisor. Upon successfully completing all processes, applicants will be admitted to KU as graduate students sponsored by Riset-Pro scholarship.


       We are sure that the postgraduate study at KU will stimulate your academic ability and expand your horizons. We look forward to receiving your application and hope to welcome you to our beautiful university.



    This information is only for Riset-Pro October 2018 admission.




    1. Courses Offered

    2. Eligibility

     ・ An individual who is an academic staff member or a researcher of Indonesian Institutes, and is a candidate of Riset-Pro scholarship.

     ・ An individual who meets all requirements set by Kanazawa University for the eligibility to apply to KU Graduate School as a Master’s or Doctoral student (see http://www.adm.kanazawa-u.ac.jp/ie/e/abroad/guideline.html for the complete list of eligibility requirements)



    The eligibility for Kanazawa University is a separate matter from the eligibility to Riset-Pro scholarship. Please be informed that you must be eligible for both, and you must successfully complete the application and be selected for both in order to study at KU.




    3. Search for a Supervisor


       If you are willing to apply to the Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology, please use THIS LINK.

       Please choose up to three faculty members of Kanazawa University whose research theme corresponds with your research topic and who can supervise you during the coursework as your adviser. Choosing more than one faculty members widens your chance of being matched with a right supervisor. Later in the application process, you will be asked to name them to request to be your supervisor.
