Go Abroad, Young Man

The education ministry is considering establishing a two- to three-year program for Japanese students to obtain post-graduate degrees overseas. According to ministry sources, details of the plan are to be decided next year, based on proposals to be made by the Central Council for Education, an advisory panel to the education minister. The plan would cover overseas travel expenses, up to US$10,000 (about ¥1.16 million) a year toward tuition fees, as well as a monthly scholarship of ¥180,000 per student.
