The following departments are accepting ADB-JSP students.
The Japan Government Scholarship Program aims at promoting studies in economics, science, and environment-related fields. The ADB scholarship was established in 1988 to uplift the students from ADB member countries. Since its inception, Asian Development Bank has left no stone unturned to contribute to the social and economic well-being of its member states. In order to fulfill its mission, ADB always supports projects which are on the basis of sustainability. Keeping in view the changing needs of Asia and the Pacific Region, Asian Development Bank has collaborated with the Japan Government to establish funds for the ADD-Japan scholarship for international students of the member states.
