Tohoku University has awarded 10 new fellowships to international students this year. Thirteen other recipients from previous years have also had their scholarships extended.
The students received their certificates from university president Susumu Satomi at a ceremony on April 14.
The Tohoku University President's Fellowship for International Students was set up in 2010 specifically to attract outstanding students from around the world. The award - which includes free tuition and the coverage of exam fees - offers foreign students an incentive to come to Japan, and the financial support to optimize their opportunities and experiences at Tohoku University.
There have been 39 recipients of the award since its inception.
