Hello and thank you for considering becoming a supporter of TranSenz!

You probably already know that TranSenz is a blog about expat living in Japan that primarily features advice about how to apply for the MEXT scholarship for graduate studies in Japan. I used to process applications for this scholarship at my job and my goal in creating this blog was to help you overcome some of the most common mistakes that I saw prevent students from earning the scholarship.

I have run the TranSenz blog as a completely free resource, and I intend it to stay that way. However, I do incur operating costs to keep the blog running, so I sincerely appreciate your generous support to help me keep it going and to allow me to dedicate more time to working on it. I can't even tell me how much it means to me that you are even here, reading this!

Whether you choose to support TranSenz for a month, longer, or not at all, I want to thank you for your support and continued reading. If you do become a patron, I look forward to chatting with you on here in the future!
