In the website of the Philippine Embassy in Seoul, you’ll find information on a scholarship available for Filipinos. It is for the Fall Semester in 2011. The grant is sponsored by Daewon University College in Jecheon City. I am quite familiar with Jecheon since that’s my husband’s hometown and I’ve been there countless of times. That’s also where we used to get our drinking water using engine driven pumps. The city is famous for its scenery, apples, and herbal medicines. It’s about two and half hours from Seoul by train or bus.
This scholarship is open for FILIPINO HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES aged 15 to 25 years old. It is for a two-year associate program.
Here is the details lifted from the Philippine Embassy website:
