The IGP is a program for those who wish to pursue graduate studies in the life sciences at Hokkaido University’s Graduate School of Life Science. In 2018, the IGP program was accepted as a special recipient for the MEXT “Training Program for Global Innovators in Life Sciences (TP-GILS)” special scholarship, which will fund 7 doctoral students and 1 master’s student this year.
Those interested should contact prospective supervisors to discuss their suitability for this scholarship. After a professor agrees to sponsor a student, application documents should be submitted to the supervisor, who will besubsequently submit to the IGP administration office by the end of October.
The first step to apply for this scholarship is to find a laboratory that matches applicant’s research goals and contact the professor directly. I would appreciate it if you could help us spread the word about this scholarship opportunity to ITB students.
