  Scholarship


    1) Scholarship within GSIS  

                 
Sogang GSIS realizes the fact that tuition is a large concern for many students. This is the reason that we have the highest percentage of scholarships offered amongst Korean GSIS programs.
All GSIS students who meet certain academic standards are entitled to a tuition scholarship.
Our GSIS offers scholarships of 25% to 100% of the tuition fees to all new students for the first semester according to their performance in the admission process. From the 2nd semester, one of the scholarships(25%, 50%, 75%, 100% of the tuition) is granted based on the GPA of the previous semester to every student who acquires 9 credits or the above and who has a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5(4.0 for Ph.D. Program) on a scale of 4.3. For the GSIS scholarship, students who did not graduate from the university in the English speaking countries are required to submit the official English test result like TOEIC, TOEFL, TEPS, or IELTS with the certain required score during their first year at Sogang GSIS. Students can apply for TA or RA from the 2nd semester for the additional scholarship. There can be also various opportunities for GSIS students to get the additional scholarships from other institutes or companies such as DAEYANG SHIPPING Co., LTD, AMPELOS ENTERPRISE Co., LTD, etc. after the admission.

*The scholarship rules may be applied differently for the Ph.D. students.

       2) Scholarships provided by private companies and institutions

                 
GSIS has engaged with domestic firms which advanced abroad. We offer scholarships and living expenses to international students according to their nations which those firms have advanced.
We have been continuously trying to expand scholarship programs and give chances to as many students as possible.
