Thank you to Shingo Ashizawa from Meiji University for sharing the announcement below:

On September 24, MEXT (the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and
Technology in Japan) made an announcement of new funding recipients for Project for Promotion of Global Human Resource Development (Global 30 Plus).  While Global 30 is mainly focusing on inbound student mobility, the new grant (Global 30 Plus) aims to encourage Japanese students to study overseas.

More than 160 universities applied for this grant. Each applicant was required to submit a proposal which includes 5-year plan for 1) the number of students who reach a target in language proficiency, 2) the number of students who receive academic credits through study abroad, and 3) the target number of students who reach criteria of Global HR (self-defined).

There are two categories in G30 Plus application. Type A is comprehensive university-wide project and Type B is designed for specific departmental project. As a result, 11 institutions were selected as Type A.  As for Type B institutions, 31 universities were chosen. Each Type A institution will receive 140 to 260 mil JPY [US$ 1.4 million to $2.5 million] a year depending on size of school population. Type B institution will receive 120 mil JPY [$1.2 million] a year. Funding will last five years.  The list of selected institutions appears below.
