About the Asian Development Bank (ADB)
ADB’s vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region’s many successes, it remains home to two-thirds of the world’s poor: 1.8 billion people who live on less than $2 a day, with 903 million struggling on less than $1.25 a day. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration.
Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
Asian Development Bank-Japan Scholarship Programme (ADB-JSP)
The Asian Development Bank (ADB)–Japan Scholarship Program (JSP) was established in April 1988 with financing from the Government of Japan. It aims to provide an opportunity for well-qualified citizens of ADB’s developing member countries to pursue postgraduate studies in economics, management, science and technology, and other development-related fields at participating academic institutions in Asia and the Pacific. Upon completion of their study programs, scholars are expected to contribute to the economic and social development of their home countries.
Each scholarship covers tuition, subsistence (including housing allowance), book allowance, medical insurance, and travel expenses. In special circumstances, where additional training is deemed necessary, expenditures incurred to improve language proficiency and computer literacy may be covered under the scholarship.
