Applications for 2018 Spring Semester Welfare Scholarship

Student Welfare Committee announces the following in relation to the selection and the payment for the 2018 Spring Semester Welfare Scholarship.
Ⅰ. Purpose
Currently, the National Scholarship (by KOSAF) is distributed in a way that alleviates tuition fees according to income, in order to reduce the burden of households suffering from tuition fees. However, selection based on income is not able to accurately reflect the real difficulties of students.
HUFS Welfare Scholarship selects beneficiaries based on various and realistic standards with the goal to reduce the burdens on students not measurable with only income.
To provide more chances to support students who don’t receive any scholarships, the committee has divided application types more specifically last fall semester (2017) in order to help students in need of support, reward and scholarship in various circumstances.
The Student Welfare Committee hopes that more students apply for this scholarship, enjoy the benefits the school provides, and will continue on to help students’ welfare.

a. Language Efficiency
HUFS has the best language programs in Korea, providing students with various chances to learn different languages. The committee hopes to motivate students for more achievement and reward their efforts.
b. International Students
There are not only Korean students but many international students attending HUFS as well.The committee would like to encourage those hard-working students to enjoy their time in Korea and continue with their academic activities.
※ The whole amount of scholarship paid by the Welfare Scholarship is donated by enterprises within school grounds and will be distributed within the scope of tuition fee.
– Enterprises within school : CU Convenience store(국제학사GlobeeDorm), 카피나라Copynara (Print shop), STN 커피STN Copy(국제학사GlobeeDorm)
c. Exchange Program
HUFS provides exchange programs(7+1 program, student exchange program) to help students build global skill set.The committee would like to encourage students who will go overseas and support them so they can continue stable academic performance.
