Scholarships are available for children of researchers or scholars who are visiting Kyoto for a finite period. Scholarships include a 30% reduction in tuition for students from Early Learning 2 to Grade 6; and a 20% reduction in tuition for Middle School students. 100% of all other fees must be paid.

An invitation letter or certificate issued by a host researcher or university showing a period of stay must be submitted for application.

Scholarships are offered for the duration of the period of research or work.

Once the student has been accepted, applicants may submit an application form with the required documents at least three weeks before the enrolment date.

Tuition Assistance

A limited number of spaces are available for families requiring financial assistance to attend our school.

The type of assistance, if granted, may take one or a combination of the following forms:

  • percentage reduction
  • monthly installments
  • deferred payment.

As a general rule, one application covers one family (as opposed to one student) for one academic year.

Families already enrolled at KIS must apply no later than the end of April if they wish assistance for the following academic year. The application deadline for new students is six weeks before their enrollment date. The deadline for students enrolling in August or September is May 31.

To apply for the percentage reduction, it is mandatory to submit the applicant’s latest tax declaration certificate (including information of municipal income tax fees) for both parents or guardians.

In addition to the application form applicants are encouraged to submit a cover letter clearly stating the type of assistance you are seeking.

Incomplete forms will not be approved.
