Maintenance grant: Daiwa Scholars receive a maintenance grant for the duration of the Scholarship which is to cover accommodation and living costs for a single person. While on the programme, Scholars may not undertake remunerated work.
Travel: The Foundation meets the cost of economy-class travel to and from Japan at the beginning and end of the scholarship.
Accommodation: For their first weeks in Japan, Daiwa Scholars are accommodated in a hotel in central Tokyo. During this period, they will look for rented apartments in which they will live for the remainder of the scholarship.
Medical insurance: All Daiwa Scholars contribute to the compulsory Japanese Government Health Scheme from their maintenance grant. In addition, the Foundation provides Scholars with standard private medical insurance while they are in Japan on the programme.
