Korea University International Student Scholarships 2023-24

Korea University offers various undergraduate scholarships in recognition of outstanding academic performance. We also understand the difficulty of financing your undergraduate study abroad and believe that tuition fees should not be a barrier to your passion for education.
We offer the Bright Future Scholarship for those who need financial assistance to ease the burden of financial hardship.
In addition, from autumn 2022, the scholarship system for current students with excellent academic achievements has been reorganized, establishing the Excellence Scholarship B and the High Achievement Scholarship. Please check the application method for each scholarship along with the scholarship amount and apply to help with your studies if needed.
