This year, UOS has been selected to benefit from the Global Korea Scholarship (GKS) program. GKS is a scholarship program for foreign students in Korea which is supported by the Korean government. The beneficiaries of the program are foreign students at 55 universities who are selected every year.
500,000 won per month (6,000,000 won in total) is going to be offered to each student who is selected. As a chosen international student at UOS, an applicant should be in their second year of study or higher, have a score of 80 out of 100, and pass level four of the TOPIK exam. More specific conditions can be found on the National Institute for International Education homepage. This scholarship is expected to reduce students’ financial burden.
