Full Scholarships to Study in South Korea for Fall 2014!


Every semester since 2005, CCIE has received full scholarships from Soonchunhyang University. 
For Fall Semester 2014, a number of full scholarships will again be awarded. 
Students do not need to know any Korean to apply.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE APRIL 25, 2014.
 
The scholarship includes the following:
  • Tuition
  • Room/board (not meals, books or daily expenses)
  • Weekly living expense support of 150,000 W (approximately $ 100)
  • Airfare (up to $ 700).  Students must buy their own tickets.  When they arrive in Korea, there will be a bank account already in their name with half of the airfare amount reimbursed for their initial living expenses.  When they complete the program, they will receive the second half of this money.
It is suggested that students bring with them $ 200 for the first few weeks, especially if they want to travel prior to the beginning of school.

Students  take courses in Korean Language; Korean Cultural Experience and Heritage; Social & Cultural History of Korea; Korean/American Relations; Korean Political Economy; Korean Business and Economics; Understanding Korean Education; Comparative Family Systems.  In addition, students will spend 15 hours per week in the “cultural and language ambassador” program in which they converse with Korean students studying at Soonchunhyang University and share cultural information.  Academic credits are offered by Soonchunhyang University, which is a fully accredited university. 
 
This is not a group study abroad program, but rather an individually designed program and as such, medical insurance must be obtained privately by an international insurance provider before arrival on campus.  Your study abroad advisor on campus will be able to assist you with this criteria.
 
Soonchunhyang University was founded in 1978 and offers undergraduate programs in 5 colleges: Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; and Graduate programs in 3 schools: Graduate School, School of Education, and School of Industrial information.  The university is located on Central West Coast of South Korea, and is located nearby famous resort destinations and cultural attractions.
