My consulate (Auckland, NZ) had a May 2009 deadline for the MEXT 2009 scholarship. But several university websites I have visited (University of Tokyo, Hiroshima University) state that applicants for the MEXT 2010 scholarship must apply at the university before August 2009. This doesn't make sense because the MEXT 2010 scholarship applications dont open at my consulate until April 2010 next year.

Is this just because the people that apply at their consulate in 2009, will simply become students at said universities in 2010 and so the consulate and universities use different dates? (Hence the university websites state MEXT 2010?)

You're just confusing people who are already in Japan studying with people in New Zealand.

They have different deadlines and application procedures.
