A Graduate Student Perspective- Joa Alexander, RSEA Master's Program, G1, KI Graduate Summer Language Grant, Summer 2018

September 6, 2018

          I would first and foremost like to thank the Korea Institute for its generous support in helping students like myself achieve their language education and research goals.

          I applied to the Korea Institute Graduate Summer Language Research Grant for fieldwork and research in Korea, from May 30th to August 31st, 2018.

         Saying that my trip to South Korea was life-changing would be an understatement. Through the Korea Institute’s Ewha tuition waiver scholarship, I was able to experience not only focused, Korea-specific courses, but also was able to make life-long connections with other visiting students. Attending Ewha impacted me personally in more than one way and gave me an experience that no other program could ever have given. ...

Sierra Tseng, '20, Korea Institute Scholarship to attend SNU International Summer Institute (SNU ISI), Summer 2018

September 6, 2018

          I happened upon Korea by chance, filling my last class spot of fall semester with a sociology class on modern Korea just as course registration was due. This sparked an interest in a country I only ever heard about in news headlines or from my Korean American friends, and caused me to follow-up my sociology class with a Korea history class during spring semester. This resulted in a year-long adventure...
