The Seoul Scholarship Foundation is planning to select a total of 200 college students from households of small business owners and provide the scholarship by the end of November.
The qualifications to apply are to be college students from households of small business owners, and either to be enrolled in a university located in Seoul or to be a student that is enrolled in a university outside of Seoul as a resident in Seoul. The application deadline is 5 PM by October 27th, and applications can be made online through the Seoul Scholarship Foundation website (www.hissf.or.kr). Detailed information on qualifications and the selection process can be found on the Seoul Scholarship Foundation website.
The selection results will be announced at the end of next month and will be based on a fair evaluation that considers the financial situation, academic grades, and income level. KRW 1 million will be given to each student of the selected 200 students.
An official from the KT&G Scholarship Foundation said, “We have decided to provide scholarships to support the households of small businesses owners who are being affected by COVID-19 and to help the college students to pursue their studies with hopes and dreams. We will continue to contribute to resolving the educational disparities of the lower class and continuously help the growth of the future generation.”
The KT&G Scholarship Foundation is a nonprofit foundation established in 2008 by KT&G to fulfill its management philosophy of a ‘better life together’, and has been actively pursuing various scholarship projects both domestically and internationally so that people do not give up on their studies for social or economic reasons.
