The guide for 2015 Silk-Road Scholarship Program

Feb 12, 2015

We are pleased to announce about 2015 Silk-Road Scholarship application.

The Silk-Road Scholarship Program is jointly funded by the SBS Foundation and Seoul National University, established in Fall 2009.

This program is designed specifically for students wishing to study Humanities and Social Sciences.

Currently the scholarship is awarded for five students annually with financial assistance covering the cost of full tuition fees and living expenses.

Students from countries located in the area of the Silk-Road may apply. We believe that education and training of scholars in Humanities related to Korea and Social Sciences is not only central to expanding the international base of Korean studies, but also essential to strengthening global competitiveness of education and research.

To this end, this program intends to promote, support, and contribute to:

  • expansion of the field of Humanities as a fundamental area of study which was under-funded due to the development of technology field
  • supporting education and research for international students
