Tokyo Institute of Technology has established the Yoshinori Ohsumi Memorial Scholarship in order to develop human resources who can play an active role internationally as leaders in the future, but starting in 2024, a new quota for female students will be added.The company plans to hire around 4 people, including the existing quota for people from rural areas and the first-generation quota for students whose parents did not graduate from a four-year university.
According to Tokyo Institute of Technology, the Yoshinori Ohsumi Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 to honor the achievements of Emeritus Professor Ohsumi, who received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2018, and to help develop leaders for a new era.
The new female student slot is part of Tokyo Institute of Technology's diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.The aim is to cultivate the female science and engineering talent that industry demands, as well as to increase the proportion of female students at universities.
The target audience is female students who wish to enroll in Tokyo Institute of Technology's undergraduate programs in 2024, and are not limited to those who wish to enroll under the female entrance examination quota.The requirements are that the academic performance in all subjects taken in high school is above 4, the annual household income is employment income and the payment amount is less than 3 million yen, and if it is not employment income, the income amount is less than 800 million yen. We will begin recruiting students in October, select applicants, and if those who are accepted enroll, we will provide them with a stipend of 337 yen per month for the standard study period.
