Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program

The World Bank scholarship and fellowship programs contribute to the World Bank Group’s mission of forging new dynamic approaches to capacity development and knowledge sharing in the developing world. They are also an important component of the Bank Group’s efforts to promote economic development and shared prosperity through investing in education and developing human resources globally.
Funded by the Japanese government and other member countries, the programs provide opportunities for graduate and postgraduate studies leading to masters’ and doctoral degrees in development-related fields for mid-career professionals and researchers. Since the programs select scholars in part due to their affiliations with agencies and institutions crucial to their countries’ development, the awards contribute to institutional capacity building as well as to individual development. Recipients of World Bank scholarships and fellowships commit to return to their home countries to apply their increased expertise and technical knowledge to benefit their countries.
The programs have helped to form a global network of well-trained and experienced development professionals, transforming their countries and positively impacting future generations.
