Daiwa Scholarships 2014
A link to the online application form will be uploaded in September 2013.
The deadline for applications and submission of three reference letters is Thursday 5 December 2013. If candidates’ circumstances change (for instance, change address) after submitting an application, they must inform the Foundation in writing. Candidates shortlisted for the first-round interviews will be contacted from mid-January 2014 onwards.
There are three stages to the interview process. The Foundation assumes that all selected candidates will be able to attend interview at Daiwa Foundation Japan House in London during the dates indicated below. While the Foundation is unable to reimburse travel expenses for candidates to attend the first two interview stages, it will reimburse reasonable travel expenses to attend the final interview. The Foundation regrets that it is unable to reimburse any accommodation costs, should these be incurred.
The preliminary selection of candidates will take place during January 2014. Candidates will be notified whether or not they are invited to a Stage 1 interview, which will take place in early to mid to February 2014 (TBC).
Candidates who successfully pass Stage 1 will be invited to sit a language aptitude test and attend a lunch at Daiwa Foundation Japan House in mid to late February 2014 (TBC). Candidates will be notified whether they are invited to Stage 3 interview shortly afterwards.
The final shortlist of candidates will be interviewed by the Trustees in March 2014 (TBC). Candidates will be notified of the final outcome soon afterwards.
