University Fellowship Creation Project
In February 2021, Tohoku University was selected for MEXT's "University Fellowship Creation Project for Innovation in Science and Technology".
This project is a MEXT-subsidized program for universities that provide fellowships consisting of research support and research funds to students entering the doctoral course who have a strong desire for research and will play an important role in the future creation of science, technology, and innovation
in Japan, and that provide a stable environment in which students can concentrate on research after completing the doctoral course.
Tohoku University will provide an environment in which excellent doctoral students enrolled in the program can devote themselves to academic research by providing them with a stipend (180,000 yen per month) and a research grant (340,000 yen per year), thereby contributing to the improvement of their research capabilities.
