The Ministry of Education and Science of Mongolia and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) launched the application of The Project for Human Resource Development Scholarship by Japanese Grant Aid (JDS) 2021 on September 1, 2021. JDS Project is funded by the Government of Japan through official development assistance (ODA). Its objective is to provide Mongolian government officials with opportunities for obtaining Master's Degree (2-year course) and Doctoral Degree (3-year course) at Japanese universities in order to support the human resource development of the Government of Mongolia, and eventually to extend and strengthen the bilateral relations between Japan and Mongolia. Totally 16 young government officials, who are expected to play leadership role in Mongolia, will be selected for Japanese academic year 2021 (enrolment in September, 2022). The application deadline is October 27, 2021 for Master's Course and December 10, 2021 for Doctoral Course.
