The Catholic University of Korea(CUK) is pleased to announce the Global Scholarship Program for 2014-15.
The Global Scholarship Program annually offers high school students and recent high school graduates from around the world ten full-time four-year undergraduate scholarships to study in South Korea. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial and academic support to promising students especially from the developing regions of the world as well as to promote diversity and intercultural education at the Catholic University of Korea. The scholarship recipients will each receive a tuition waiver, monthly stipend, and free housing at the international dormitory. The field of study is open.
The Catholic University of Korea is a private Roman Catholic institution of higher education founded in 1855. Leading at the forefront of global education, the university has been training the next generation of leaders and creative thinkers through its intercultural and environmental curricula, programs in ethical leadership, and the recently established Hallyu Graduate School. The scholarship recipients will benefit from the multidisciplinary and international community of scholars and students, advanced learning and living facilities, and the university’s commitment to fostering global leadership and Catholic Humanism.
The Global Scholarship Program welcomes applications worldwide, and students from historically underrepresented people groups in South Korea are especially encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will demonstrate academic excellence, ethical leadership, and interest in Korean Studies. Those who evidence competency in the Korean language will be given priority. Please see below for further details on the eligibility criteria and application procedures. The applications are due 31 March 2014.
