Ambassador Kikuta hosted a send-off party for Nepali students who will be studying in Japan under the Scholarship offered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan, at his Residence.

The Government of Japan offers this no-need-pay-back scholarship to international students to pursue higher studies in Japan for undergraduate, graduate, specialized training college students, and teachers.

This spring, a total of 7 Nepali students - 2 for undergraduate, 3 for master’s and 2 for doctoral degree – will be proceeding to Japan to obtain their degrees.

Dr. Sunil Babu Shrestha, the president of Japanese Universities Alumni Association, Nepal (JUAAN) also offered fruitful advice to the students about life and university in Japan, as he himself had experienced them.

The Embassy is confident that these young scholars will serve as a bridge between Japan and Nepal and contribute to further strengthening mutual understanding, friendship, and cooperation between the two countries.
