Korea Institute Scholarships for the Harvard Summer School-Korea Program 
Date of Deadline: February 3, 2022 via an email application

Please Note: For AY21-22, due to COVID-19, all programs and opportunities in Korea are subject to change and/or cancellation. All support related to travel is contingent upon Harvard University guidelines and safety protocols before, during and after travel. Please see the following sites for the most up-to-date guidance: Harvard Travel Guidance and Harvard GSS COVID-19 travel advice.

The Korea Institute offers limited scholarships to undergraduate students who need additional financial assistance to attend the Harvard Summer School-Korea Program. Students on financial aid are given priority. Awards are made in consultation with the Office of Career Services. You do NOT apply online via CARAT or fill anything out on CARAT and there is no 'official' form.  To apply, please simply email a budget sheet (what dollar amount you will need and the costs that make this up and provide an exact dollar amount, ) along with a written statement of your financial need (about a few paragraphs/1 page) to cglover@fas.harvard.edu. The budget sheet should include program cost, sources of income and amounts, along with an itemized budget (costs of program). Please be very clear as to the final dollar amount you are requesting from the KI. The statement should describe why you/your family need this scholarship for you to attend this program.  Please also denote if you are a US citizen, International student or a U.S. Permanent Resident. The statement is very important, as you will need to differentiate yourself/your needs from the other student applicants applying for the same scholarship. Please also mention if you will apply for the Office of Career Services Summer Funding for HSS, as well. And if not, why not. You may apply and (possibly receive) funding from both the Korea Institute and the Office of Career Services.

The 2020 HSS-Korea budget is attached below. These items should be emailed to: Catherine Glover cglover@fas.harvard.edu by the deadline for the Harvard Summer School-Korea Program. This is the very same deadline as the online Harvard Summer School Abroad Program Application Deadline and the OCS Summer Funding for HSS Application Deadline. You must inform the Institute if you receive any other award for this proposal after you submit this application. These scholarships are only available to Harvard undergraduates.

Harvard College 2022 Summer Funding Policy oue.fas.harvard.edu/summer-2022-funding-policy

Harvard College prioritizes the wide distribution of Summer funding to ensure that as many undergraduate students as possible can have a meaningful summer experience. For funded Summer 2022 experiences, students may only apply Harvard University funding to one Summer experience, regardless of duration of time (ex. only four weeks or a part-time effort). Co-funding between multiple sources of funding is permitted only if the funding jointly supports the same Summer experience.

Exceptions to the Summer Funding Policy are uncommon and will be reviewed on an individual basis; students should make exception requests to their Resident Dean, who will forward on to the Office of Undergraduate Education. All exceptions will be approved by the Office of Undergraduate Education.

Failure to adhere to the Harvard College Summer funding policy may result in a student being referred to the Administrative Board or Honor Council.
