I’ve men­tioned in my pre­vi­ous post that I’ve applied for a schol­ar­ship to do a Mas­ter Degree in Japan.

It is a schol­ar­ship jointly offered by the Japan Foun­da­tion and the Japan­ese Gov­ern­ment. It’s called the Asian Youth Fel­low­ship (AYF) pro­gramme which aims to nur­ture human net­work­ing among ASEAN coun­tries, Bangladesh and Japan.

The AYF pro­gramme con­sists of 2 parts — a 7-month Japan­ese lan­guage course at Kan­sai and a 2-year post­grad­u­ate study at a Japan­ese Grad­u­ate School.

I have always wanted to do my Mas­ter Degree in a for­eign coun­try. And when the des­ti­na­tion is Japan — which hap­pens to be one of my favourite coun­tries — it has become the ulti­mate dream to pursue.

When I heard about this schol­ar­ship from a friend of mine who is cur­rently doing his post­grad­u­ate in Japan as well under another sim­i­lar pro­gramme, with­out hes­i­ta­tion I told myself this is it.

The tim­ing is just right. I’ve got to do this now. If I wait for a few more years, I will be too old los­ing the inter­est already.

How­ever, get­ting all the nec­es­sary doc­u­ments is already a tough task, at least for me. It wasn’t an easy job fill­ing out the 9-page appli­ca­tion form, writ­ing the research pro­posal, get­ting all the tran­scripts cer­ti­fied and get­ting all the ref­er­ence let­ters needed.

I couldn’t believe I’ve actu­ally gone through all the has­sle and get all the doc­u­ments ready before the dead­line. Though I’m still a lit­tle bit wor­ried if I’ve missed out something.

Nev­er­the­less, appli­ca­tion has been sub­mit­ted and there’s noth­ing much I could do now except wait.

Result will be out next year March.

Let’s just hope for the best.

wow, i didn’t know you are inter­ested in pur­su­ing your stud­ies. I really hope that u will be able to get the schol­ar­ship, as it is a very good oppor­tu­nity. But i have to agree with you that writ­ing a pro­posal is a pain of ass, i am suf­fer­ing right now :p
