The Korean Embassy in the Philippines is now accepting applications for the 2012 Korea Global Scholarship. This government scholarship program is for those who would like to take a 4-year undergraduate degree in a higher educational institute in Korea. Of course, this will include a 1-year language course preparatory to the actual undergraduate degree. The scholarship will be from the period of March 1, 2012 to February 28, 2017.
The grant will cover round-trip airfare, monthly stipend, tuition and fees, Korean language training expenses, medical insurance, and even settlement and repatriation allowance.
There are only two slots for Filipino scholars. To be qualified, one needs to be 25 years old as of March 1, 2012 and will be scheduled to graduate high school by that date. Your cumulative grades during your whole high school must be at least 80% (which is quite low a standard for a scholarship of this magnitude). You must must not have studied for an undergraduate in Korea before, have been a Korean exchange student, or received a Korean government scholarship. Of course, those who are proficient in Korean or English will have an advantage.
For full details regarding the scholarship application process, please click HERE. All applications must be submitted to the Embassy of the Republic of Korea located at 122 Upper McKinley Road, McKinley Town Center, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City 1634 on or before September 30, 2011.
