2009 Korean Government Scholarship for Grad. Students
Wow, this looks like a great scholarship. Thanks to Dae-won from GOAL for spreading the news. This scholarship is an increbidle opportunity for anyone who has thought about moving to Korea for an extended period of time. Not only is your airfare covered, but a monthly allowance for living expenses, and “additional allowances.” You can choose a Master’s Program (three years) or a Doctoral Program (four years). The first year is only learning Korean, which to me sounds great!
And….get this “There are no limits in regards to nationality and number of applicants.” It does depend on your country’s own stipulations but they urge you to check with your Korean consulate for more information.
Let’s review shall we? Free roundtrip airfare, a Master’s/Doc program, learn Korean, monthly allowance, additional allowances and…LIVE IN KOREA!!! Maybe I’m getting too excited about this, but it is a great scholarship opportunity.
GOAL needs all applications probably a week or two before June 12, 2009, to be eligible. Term starts in the fall of this year. And don’t worry, this scholarship isn’t going anywhere. There will be more next year! Good luck -GS
