Undergraduate Scholarship Opportunities


**The Undergraduate scholarship is offered during the Fall Semesters.**

Thanks to generous support from the Korean community and the Stony Brook alumni, the Korean Studies Program has offered various scholarship opportunities to both graduate and undergraduate students for past twenty years. We currently have two undergraduate scholarships available each fall semester.

Korean Studies minor students are eligible to apply for the scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to those who demonstrate excellence in the study of Korea and display a leadership role as an undergraduate student around the campus. Each selected student will receive a $1,000 cash award.   The deadline for the 2019 Competition is October 15th (Tues.), and the awardee(s) will be announced by November 18 (Mon.).  Applications must include a completed application form available on this website, a transcript, a CV and a personal statement. Two recommendation letters, at least one from a faculty member at Stony Brook, should be submitted directly to the Center by the recommenders. For further inquiries, contact Professor Heejeong Sohn at 632-7311.
