Scholarship to South Korea

I thought I’d help Elliot to spread the word. He was in Korea almost two years ago (?) on a study grant at Daejeon University. He posted an article about getting a scholarship to South Korea in the same school. Fellow Pinay blogger Cher also commented on a fellowship sponsored by the Korea Foundation.
Prof. Marlon Diloy of Yeungjin College in Daegu had also mentioned of a scholarship for Filipinos at the school where he’s teaching. I’ll update this post later with more info.
You may also want to check with PIKO or Pinoy Iskolars sa Korea, Inc. for other study grants.
There are other study grants available to South Korea. If you know any, you need not hesitate to share them 😀
For other scholarships to other countries, check out Filipino Scholars.


    1. Hi Cher!
      I am Christina and I applied for masters in Seoul National University. Fortunately I got admitted. MY problem now is finding a cheap dormitory. Maybe you have any idea where I can find one.Thank you.

      1. Hi cher, your lucky u’v got admitted in SNU? can u share your experiences on how how to enroll there as well as the interview process and scholarships..please..thanks..more power

    2. hi cher….

      im very interested in korea, i want to know about their contry thats why, i search for scholarship program….
      do we have to pay something?
      what are the things neede to qualify?

      1. Hi, if you apply to SolBridge you can get scholarship, and also from the Government of Korea. You can study korean language as well. If need more information about how to apply, just email me. Thank you, and welcome!

  1. Kung di lang po ako nagttrabaho, I will grab this opportunity. Gustong gusto ko talaga pumunta sa Korea na may purpose sana, yung magtatagal. Kaso nga po andito naman trabaho ko. Kung may trabaho lang sa Korea na katumbas din ng labor and wage ko dito eh di go na ako. 🙁 Anung mga courses covered nung mga scholarship ate?

  2. Hi Eden! I do not know exactly your financial situation, but you really don’t have to treat your job as a good excuse not to grab opportunities of this sort.
    In the long run, you’ll see that you’ve made the right choice.
    Ms. Betch, thank you for linking the post. Your blog, along with Ms. Cher, deserves its growing readership. w00t.

  33. hello sir,
    i am suman from Bangladesh .Now i am studing in the department of Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in University of Dhaka.I am in 4th year.i want to complete my M.S degree in your country.My family can not afford the cost of study in Korea .So i need a scholarship to continue my study.

    Place of Birth: Makati City
    Educational Attainment: High School Graduate
    First of all, I want you to know that I came from a very poor family, that I finished my High School studies with the help of my relatives. Before, We live at Makati City until our house was razed by fire, Sometime in 2004, which result the loss of my younger brother. In 2005, We lived in Dasmarinas Cavite with our relatives as my father becomes their driver with a monthly earnings of P1,500.00 to which is not sufficient enough to support my studies, including my daily allowance. As of now, I still didn’t got my report card since we still have outstanding balance with my school.
    My father told me, as I am a computer enthusiast, to surf in the computer to those country who have embassies here in the Philippines, that provide educational scholarships.
    At first, I was hesitant, but somewhat excited, to know that some foreign countries are giving educational scholarship as aid to our country and I saw this opportunity to be my stepping stone to reach my ambition and to upgrade our way of living through education, which for me is the greatest riches to uphold by human being. And also, to have friendly relationship with your country by knowing your customs and traditions.
    If ever, I’ll passed your criteria in choosing a scholar, I’ll promise to abide all rules and regulations of your country. And also, I’ll promise to finish my studies with flying colors. There is one great opportunity that I’ll not taken for granted. For me, this is one dream that will come true and I will cherish it forever.
