Pre-GEfIL Project

About Pre-GEfIL Project

As a precursor to the GEfIL program, which will start in 2016, we are running a ‘Pre-GEfIL Project’ offering qualified, full-time undergraduate students at UTokyo the opportunity and financial support to study on carefully selected summer programs of top-class international universities and educational institutions. Participating students will be able to meet and collaborate with peers and researchers from all over the world, establish their own international networks, and experience a piece of student life at some of the most famous international universities.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of supporting companies, ‘Pre-GEfIL Project’ students will receive substantial scholarships towards the costs of their chosen summer program. Whether it is for your current studies or your planned future career, the ‘Pre-GEfIL Project’ provides thus opportunities not to be missed!


The UTokyo Center for the Development of Global Leadership Education invites applications for “PEACE BOAT SPECIAL GLOBAL UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME Re-Defining Security: Is Common Human Security Possible in Asia?” to be held from the 21st of August to the 9th of September 2015.
We are inviting both undergraduate and postgraduate students to apply for the PEACE BOAT SPECIAL GLOBAL UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME. To participate in this summer program, students are required to have a high level of English language proficiency (minimum score of TOEFL iBT 100 or IELTS 7.0) and a demonstrated strong motivation to study abroad. Candidates are selected within the University of Tokyo through a screening of their submitted documents as well as an interview conducted in English. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of supporting companies, successful applicants may receive a partial scholarship for the other expenses.
