Scholarship and Financial Aid

SUNY Korea Scholarship Committee will apply the following scholarship criteria and benefits as a minimum reference standard. External references such as leadership, extracurricular activities, honors/awards, essay, and etc. will also be taken into account.

The criteria may be revised and enhanced upon committee’s decision due to availability of funds and its competitiveness. Number of scholarship recipients may vary each semester upon availability of funds for each scholarship or financial aid secured from SUNY Korea.
