Introduction

The Japan-IMF Scholarship Program for Asia (JISPA) aims to contribute to institutional capacity building of key macroeconomic management agencies in Asia. With this aim, it provides scholarships for highly motivated government officials who may serve as future macroeconomic policy makers with the capacity and vision to contribute to the economic development of their countries.

Partnership Track

The JISPA partnership track allows scholars to study specially designed graduate level courses concentrating on macroeconomics at an IMF partnership university.

Open Track

The open track of the JISPA provides support to scholars who wish to study graduate-level macroeconomics or a related field at either the master’s or Ph.D. level at any leading university in Japan. However, priority is given to Ph.D. candidates.
