The Free-Backpack Travel program is offered only to undergraduate students of the UOS. Students can apply to the program as a team of 3 to 5 members. No research plan is required it.
To be eligible to the program, applicants should submit their tour plans and be qualified for proficiency in a foreign language. Uniqueness and creativity of the students’ plans are the key for the admittance to the Free-Backpack Travel program.
Annually, two hundred students are chosen and given the support of a million won per person. Through those evaluation tests, a total of 71 teams were admitted to this program for the summer of 2004. The number was higher than those of previous years because the Theme Travel subsidy was provided to the Free-Backpack Travel subsidy.
