South Korea Scholarship for Filipino High School Graduates

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:

Daewon University College (DUC), Jechon City, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Philippines in Seoul, is providing scholarship opportunities for Filipino students who are interested in pursuing two-year associate program in the fields of Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Social Service. Scholarship benefits include three-year tuition waiver (1 year Korean language program and two years major education), roundtrip economy air ticket, dormitory and meal allowance.
The scholarship is open to Filipino high school graduates and college undergraduates, ages 15 to 25 years old.
FYI, the scholarship committee will prioritize high school students or current college students, who can not pursue or continue college education due to financial/economic reasons. College graduate / degree holder need not apply.
Selected students will start their autumn semester on 01 September 2011.
Interested applicants must email Mr. Mylo Fausto, Cultural Officer, at for application requirements.
Deadline of application is on 15 May 2011.

Hurry and apply now!


  1. i still have a philippine passport, do i have to be in the philippines in order to qualify? i mean, i did good in high school and am still under 25 (and would like a vacation in korea :D)

  2. college grad ako pro im interested sna to study there.. strictly for high school grads lng ang qualified? salamat 🙂 i really want to visit and somehow in the future, also live there for real.. thanks again! 🙂

  3. Wow! Does this happen yearly, Ate Betchay?
    My brother is only in his junior year but I bet he’s gonna be interested with this after his high school graduation. He has been studying Korean history and culture since last year and I believe this program/experience is something that he can learn so much about. 🙂

    1. Hi Marix! I think this is the first time that Daewon is offering the scholarship. A lot of Korean universities are offering scholarships to foreigners to boost their ranking/rating. Hopefully, they’ll offer it again next year.
      If you know someone, please spread the word. Thanks!
