MEXT has compiled a list of resources for students studying in Japan and who are currently facing financial difficulties and released the list online.
The volunteer team at MSA has translated the list and published it below. Alternatively, you may choose to view the document in a new tab here.
We recommend that any one facing financial difficulties view the resources below because it not only gives information about the grants which are available but possibilities for delaying or reducing utility bills etc.
To our knowledge, these resources are available to all foreign students. However, there may be means testing for individual resources which may disqualify people based on their income (including scholarships).
