- A complete application form, a letter of recommendation from one faculty member, and an essay explaining how the study in Japan will apply to the applicant's academic and personal goals must be submitted by the application deadline.
- If more than one student qualifies, the recipient will be the applicant with the most financial need as reported by the Director of Financial Aid and determined by the "Expected Family Contribution" based on the FAFSA.
