Korea Institute Scholarships for the Harvard Summer School-Korea Program
Date of Deadline: Late January 2021-Exact deadline TBA
Please Note: For AY20-21, due to COVID-19, all programs and opportunities in Korea are subject to change and/or cancellation.
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. Instead 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. . 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 email@example.com 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.
