Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) offers Graduate Research Program (GRP) for deserving and qualified students.
This is a new graduate-level program aiming at providing the state of the art education in the rapidly progressing field of computer science and information technologies.
Each student in this program will be associated with one of research projects conducted by nationally and internationally recognized faculty members, and will participate in research and development under the project.
Through the involvement in a cutting-edge research project, the student receives in-depth training and high-quality research supervision directly by the responsible faculty members throughout the enrollment.
Each student will receive the salary as a research assistant for his/her own research/study. The amount is calculated as 28 hours per week and 1,400 yen (Japanese Yen) per hour.
This means about 157,000 yen per month (or, equivalently about 1,900,000 yen per year). Each year, the contract will be judged to revalidate based on the evaluation.
For foreign students, financial support for onward travel will be provided.
