Korea Institute Scholarship to attend the Seoul National University-International Summer Institute - SNU ISI (Undergraduate) 
Date of Deadline: Monday, Feb. 6, 2017 by 5pm EST

Seoul National University (SNU) is one of Korea’s foremost universities. For more information on the SNU International Summer Institute (ISI), please see: http://isi.snu.ac.kr/isi/main/main.jsp

In partnership with SNU ISI, the Korea Institute will award scholarships (full tuition waivers, dorm and airfare) for two Harvard undergraduates in any concentration to attend the SNU ISI Summer Session 2017. These scholarships will cover tuition fees which will be waived by SNU to the students selected under this program. The Korea Institute will provide payment for the dormitory fees to the dorm and round trip airfare (economy class, non-refundable, up to $1800). Students are still responsible for meals and general living expenses.

*This scholarship is generously sponsored by an alumna of Harvard College at SNU. This opportunity is only for Harvard undergraduates. Preference will be given to those returning to Harvard in the Fall.*

Students may apply to OCS (Office of Career Services) for an OCS Summer Study Abroad Grant to possibly cover some of the above costs not covered by this grant. Best to consult with the OCS Summer Funding staff  before applying to OCS Summer Funding.
