Patriot Access Scholarship

George Mason University Korea awards Patriot Access Scholarship to students based on demonstrated financial need.

The 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.  All continuing students are eligible in the initial rollout of the scholarship, which will start providing new support for students starting from the Fall 2021 semester.
