MK Patriot Access Scholarship

George Mason University Korea awards Patriot Access Scholarship to students based on demonstrated financial need. The MK Patriot Access Scholarship complements the Fairfax Patriot Access Scholarship, which provides additional need-based financial support to students studying at Mason's US campus. 

The MK Patriot Access Scholarship is determined by family income and will cover the time students are studying on the Mason Korea campus.  The scholarship will be subject to a yearly review of the student's family income to ensure that the amount provided remains appropriate.  Students will receive the scholarship upon admission, but continuing students may apply for the scholarship if they experience a change in their family income.  Students who receive a Need-based Entrance Scholarship are eligible to apply.
