African Business Education Initiative for Youth (ABE Initiative)
“The ABE Initiative offers opportunities for young and eligible African men and women to study for a graduate degree at Japanese universities as international students. At the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V) it was recognized that there was a need for the development of a robust healthcare workforce in both the private and public sectors of Africa. At the same time, participants expressed a desire to cultivate a strong network between Japan and Africa to give African students the opportunity to learn about the efficiency of Japanese technologies and systems of enterprise.”

Joint Japan / World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP)
“Established in 1987 with funding from the Government of Japan, the Joint Japan / World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP) has helped create an international community of development professionals through the Program’s financing of graduate and post-graduate studies.”
“Unlike most other well-known scholarship programs, the JJ/WBGSP does not focus on a specific region, group, hosting institution or country, or field of study. For developing country nationals, the only major restrictions are: scholars must pursue graduate studies abroad in one of the Program’s partner or preferred university graduate programs, and immediately upon graduation scholars must return home to contribute to the development of their countries.”
Details regarding the JJ/WBGSP can be found on their website.
