Entrance Scholarship

 

GMU Korea offers Entrance Scholarships ranging from USD 1,000 to USD 15,000. Scholarships are renewable every semester for up to six semesters on the Korea campus as long as the recipient remains in good academic standing and maintains a GPA of 3.3. Entrance Scholarship candidates are selected at the point of admission and are required to follow the below steps:

  • Step 1: Receive Scholarship Candidate Letter. (Candidates will be selected and their notification sent out at the point of admission)
  • Step 2: Submit a one page single-spaced essay on “How a scholarship may help you succeed academically as well as personally” by the stated deadline in the letter. (Candidates are given approximately 12-15 days to submit essay)
  • Step 3: Confirm interview time and participate in the final interview via Skype. (15-20 minutes)

 

Interviews will be coordinated after the student receives Entrance Scholarship candidacy (interviews may be scheduled between 2-4 weeks after notification of candidacy). Candidates will be considered by the scholarship committee based on the following factors holistically: GPA, essay, diversity, extracurricular activities, communication skills and final interview. Please note that the interview is an excellent opportunity for candidates to showcase who they are and why they are truly deserving of the scholarship. Candidates will be assessed from the Scholarship Review Committee and results will be given individually when awarded scholarship.
