Japan is still continuing to do its best to tackle its abysmal birth rate problem, this time by promising free university access for families with 3 or more kids.
Tuition and all related fees will be free for households containing three or more children, and there will be no restrictions regarding income. Junior college and technical college students will be included in this package.
The income limit will be raised to 6 million yen per year starting next year for university scholarships (which require no repayment) for the aforementioned families with three or more children.
A cabinet meeting sometime this month will officially decide on the new measure, which is to be bundled with the “Children’s Future Strategy”.
