*Announcement on Funding Regarding the Advanced Leading Graduate Course for Photon Science*

The Advanced Leading Graduate Course for Photon Science (ALPS) is a government-funded program that is part of the MEXT “Program for Leading Graduate Schools”.

The period of government funding for the ALPS course will conclude at the end of the 2017 fiscal year; however, the University of Tokyo has decided to continue providing financial support for students in Leading Graduate School courses established by the university. This means that ALPS course students, who have fulfilled the requirements of being a student on the course, will be able to receive their monthly grant until the end of their third year of doctoral studies.

The admission process for the ALPS course will continue to be conducted for students who would like to enroll in September 2017.

From the 2018 fiscal year, the support scheme for graduate students in Leading Graduate School courses at the University of Tokyo, including ALPS, may be transferred to the World-leading Innovative Graduate Study (WINGS), a Graduate School of International Excellence, which is currently being developed by MEXT.
