Joint Japan World Bank Graduate (JJ/WBG) Scholarships Programme

Established in 1987 with funding from the Government of Japan, the World Bank Joint Japan Graduate Scholarship Programme has helped create an international community of highly trained professionals working in economic and social development through financing of graduate and post-graduate studies. To date, the Programme has awarded over 5.000 scholarships.

The JJ/WBG Scholarship Programme does not focus on a specific region, group, hosting institution, country, or field of study. It targets scholars from developing countries who wish to pursue graduate studies abroad, and who will return home to contribute to the development of their country after graduation.

The World Bank administers the Scholarship Programmes through the World Bank Institute (WBI).
