Korean Language Study Scholarships - Seoul



Applicants must be a Korean adoptee -and- a G.O.A.'L member to be eligible for this scholarship

NOTICE: Please read the Student Code of Conduct agreement located at the bottom of this page. If you have any questions, please contact the G.O.A.'L office.

Things to Keep in Mind:

1. Applying for a scholarship through G.O.A.’L and applying for a spot in a university program are separate processes. Receiving a language scholarship through G.O.A.’L DOES NOT guarantee you a spot in the language program. Although G.O.A.’L administers the scholarships on behalf of the language schools, the schools do not necessarily reserve an equivalent number of spots for scholarship recipients. It is highly recommended that all scholarship applicants also apply for the language school of choice as soon as registration opens.
2. The scholarships are only applicable to the programs/terms listed below. They are not applicable to any short-term or specialized courses. The programs below are designed to be immersive and intensive. The schools expect you to preview class material beforehand, review class material after class, as well as complete homework. For further details about class format, please contact the schools directly.
3. The language schools may also request that G.O.A.’L send additional information or information on your behalf.
4. The applications are first-come-first-serve. Registration may close early if all spots fill-up prior to the registration deadline.
5. SCHOLARSHIPS ARE NON-TRANSFERABLE. Please be aware of your availability, class schedules, personal finances, and other commitments BEFORE applying.

G.O.A.’L reserves the right to make any final decision if applicant does not meet qualifications for eligibility. The scholarship recipient is responsible for obtaining a proper visa and making housing arrangements, if needed.


Each university has a mandatory registration fee, ranging from KRW 60,000 to KRW 80,000 plus textbook fees. These costs are not covered by the GOA'L scholarship and must be paid by the applicant.

NOTE: Language schools recommend their students to have the equivalent of USD 5000 [EUR ~4700, KRW ~5,700,000] to study for one term (~3 months). This is to cover the remaining tuition balance (if applicable), accomodation, textbooks and miscellaneous school supplies, as well as daily food, transportation, and leisure activities.
