Rikkyo University will establish a new "Rikkyo University Global Scholarship" from 2016 to financially support students studying abroad.This is a benefit-type scholarship that does not require repayment and is applicable to all study abroad programs such as dispatched study abroad, study abroad at accredited schools, and overseas internships. It is expected to be paid to more than 2016 students in 500.

According to Rikkyo University, the global scholarship program is open to undergraduate, graduate, and regular international students participating in study abroad programs.Depending on the household income of each student, 10 to 40 yen will be paid.We will also establish a new "Rikkyo University Alumni Association Study Abroad Support Scholarship" that covers all students who meet the criteria and provides additional scholarships to students with excellent grades.The target of the additional scholarship is undergraduate students with excellent academic performance and above, and regular international students.The amount of benefits is 2 yen, and we plan to provide it to a total of 10 people in FY2016.

However, in the 2014 Student Life Survey conducted by the Japan Association of Private Universities, 52% of the students answered that they were not thinking about studying abroad, and the most common reason was economics.For this reason, Rikkyo University has decided to introduce a new system to support students who are willing to study abroad but have given up for financial reasons.
