Supporting Creativity and Enthusiasm to Learn in Individuals

HSU understands the importance of supporting students in their various pursuits during their college life. Scholarships and awards are offered to encourage students’ efforts and to celebrate their accomplishments.


To encourage students to achieve high standards, the HSU President awards two prizes: the President’s Prize and the President’s Incentive Award. These awards are presented to individual students or student groups who have demonstrated noteworthy achievements in scholastic, artistic, sporting, cultural or social activities. Introduced in 1997, these prizes are awarded twice a year and have been presented to various groups of students and to individual students since their introduction.

Reduction and Exemption of Tuition Fees for International Students

To ease the financial burden on self-financed students from abroad, whenever possible, HSU makes a practice of either reducing the tuition costs or exempting students with exceptional records from these charges altogether. There are three categories of tuition funding : (1) full tuition and facility fees, (2) full tuition fees, or (3) 50% of tuition fees. All incoming students are screened according to their Japanese language score in the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students. Admission of undergraduate students is based largely on their academic records.
HSU scholarships are offered annually covering the whole academic year. Students may re-apply for the following year. Re-applications are considered on the basis of the student’s academic record at HSU. This funding also applies to graduate students.
