Lump Sum Loans

International students in need of financial assistance can apply for our cash loan system. After screening and if accepted, loans of up to ¥50,000 may be provided interest-free for 6 months.



Be enrolled as an international student at Hokkaido University.



For details on how to apply, ask at the Academic Affairs Section of your department, or at the Student Support Division, Academic Affairs Department.


Please note:

  • This is a loan system so any amount rendered must be reimbursed.
  • Applications take approximately 4 weeks to process after being submitted.
  • Submitting an application does not guarantee support.
  • Students already receiving a scholarship from the Japanese government or from a foreign government, and students who have been enrolled for less than 6 months are ineligible to apply.
