We study renormalization in a scalar field theory on the fuzzy sphere. The theory is realized by a matrix model, where the matrix size plays the role of a UV cutoff. We define correlation functions by using the Berezin symbol identified with a field and calculate them nonperturbatively by Monte Carlo simulation. We find that the 2-point and 4-point functions are made independent of the matrix size by tuning a parameter and performing a wave function renormalization. The results strongly suggest
