Application Guideline for Silk-Road Scholarship of Fall 2016

Feb 01, 2016

We are pleased to announce the call for Silk-Road Scholarship application of Fall 2016. The Silk-Road Scholarship Program is jointly funded by the SBS Cultural 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

Applications must be submitted to Office of International Affairs no later than March 31(Thu), 2016, 18:00. Please note that applying late and the late arrival of application documents will not be considered under any circumstances.
