I had my eye on this eBook for awhile and finally purchased it. After reading it I immediately saw several large problems with the application package I'd put together. The Monbukagakusho Research Prep. Guide helped me clarify and expand my research plan and proposal, and consequently I am much more confident about my chances of success.
This is a useful and valuable resource for anyone planning to apply for the MEXT scholarship.

Future Monbukagakusho Research Scholarship Applicant:

Want to pursue (post)graduate studies in Japan with a Monbukagakusho Research Scholarship?

The Monbukagskusho Scholarship (also known as Monbusho Scholarship, MEXT Scholarship or Japanese Government Scholarship) is the dream of thousands of students worldwide. Established in 1954 and offered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), it is a scholarship that covers full tuition and very generous monthly stipend for accepted students to attend internationally respected universities in Japan, pursue their academic interests, and receive degrees and qualifications in their respective studies. To date, more than 75,000 students from approximately 160 countries have received this prestigious scholarship and studied at top universities in Japan.

The Monbukagakusho application process (Monbukagakusho Scholarship 2019-2020, Monbukagakusho 2019-2020), however, can be extremely frustrating and confusing due to the lack of clear guidelines and instructions in filling out the applications and completing the process. Take a look at a few of the past applicants' comments regarding their 'blind' application process:

Countless times I wished I could have access to a couple successful applications, just to give me some idea if I was on the right track or not. But despite tireless internet searches, I could never seem to find anything like that.Lars Martinson, East Asia Calligraphy, USA (Passed).
Unfortunately, I received emails from them [Monbukagakusho applicatns] saying they were not accepted. Some were angry, some were sad, some felt they were just unlucky. Some were even asking me if the application process is fair.Sonaiko, Electronic Engineering, Brazil (Passed).
I was pretty sure I was going to get the scholarship. I was well-prepared and thought I did everything right. I got the impression that the reviewers liked my applications and profile... still don't know what I did wrong?!Pedro Souza, Information Science, Spain (Failed).

Most applicants believe that their success onto obtaining the scholarship is exclusively biased to their performance during application, which is a big common mistake. There are several factors and qualitifactions that are taken into account by Monbukagakusho coordinators, and some of them should be acquired, or built, long before applying. It is strongly recommended that you start preparing as soon as possible in order to get a better idea on what is expected from applicants in terms of their skills, academic records and research experiences.
