Korean Language Study Scholarships - Seoul

YOU MUST BE A KOREAN ADOPTEE & G.O.A.'L MEMBER IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THIS SCHOLARSHIP
NOTICE: Please read and understand the Student Code of Conduct agreement. If you have any questions, please contact the G.O.A.'L Office.

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. Therefore, we encourage scholarship applicants to also apply for the language school of their choice as soon as the school registration opens.

The scholarships are only applicable to the programs/terms listed below. They are not applicable to any short-term or specialized courses.

The language schools may also request that G.O.A.’L send additional information or information on your behalf.

The applications are first-come-first-served and registration may end early if the spots fill-up before the registration deadline.

SCHOLARSHIPS ARE NON-TRANSFERABLE, that is, being awarded a scholarship and registering for class prevents another person from acquiring a scholarship.
Please be aware of your time, schedule, finances, and other committments
BEFORE applying.

Tuition:

The scholarships cover part or all of tuition. Room and board are not covered, unless specifically mentioned. Korean semesters last 10 weeks (thus on this page we refer to them as quarters or terms).


Fees and notification:

The universities have a mandatory registration fee, ranging from KRW 60,000 to KRW 80,000 depending on the university. Also, each university charges fees for textbooks.

The scholarship recipients will be contacted within 5 business days after the application deadline via phone and/or email.

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

NOTE: Many language schools recommend their students have the equivalent of USD 5000 [EUR ~4700, KRW ~5700000] to study for one term (~3 months). Remember, if you do not already reside in Korea you must purchase a flight. Then, for school itself you must pay the remaining tuition balance (if applicable), pay for accomodations, food/transportation/leisure activities, school supplies, etc. We ask scholarship candidates to be aware of their personal financial situation and schedule before applying for the scholarship.

ALL documents must be submitted within 1 day of the online application deadline (F-4 visa must be obtained prior to the first day of class). Incomplete applications will be cancelled and will require you to re-apply.
