If you are making an application for the first time, please also send materials that show the outline of your organization and the details of your activities.

2. Interview

The person in charge will contact you to arrange an interview.
An interview may not be required if your organization is a public institution. The university will decide whether or not to register your organization based on the interview and materials provided and in accordance with the policy set forth by the University of Tsukuba.

3. Issuing an organization ID and notification of the decision

An organization ID will be issued to organizations that have passed the review and they will receive a Decision Notification.
It normally takes about two weeks from the time of application and interview until the notification is sent.

After your organization has been registered, file an application to recruit volunteers through the website.
