Korea Society’s Undergraduate Study Abroad Travel Grant

Korea Society’s Undergraduate Study Abroad Travel Grant

The Korea Society is pleased to announce the launch of our new Undergraduate Study Abroad Travel Grant. This grant is made possible through the generous support of the CKD Kochon Foundation.

Given the Society’s commitment to promote a greater awareness, understanding and cooperation between the people of the U.S. and Korea, this travel grant has been created to ensure a wide-range of undergraduate students have the opportunity to study and live in Korea. However, for some the high cost of travel to and from Korea can present a burden and personal funding for travel within the country can be nonexistent.

Therefore this travel ‘topping off’ grant has been developed to defray travel expenses for students who would normally struggle financially to realize the life-changing experience of studying abroad, the soft-skill development which future employers find so attractive, and, most importantly, the chance to cultivate an in-person understanding of Korea, a country of strategic importance to the U.S.

The application is currently open. Deadline to apply is August 20, 2023.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Currently enrolled as an undergraduate student in an accredited U.S. college or university.

  • Be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident.

  • Demonstrate a strong interest in the Republic of Korea.

  • Demonstrate financial need and a compelling explanation of how the travel grant award is important to them personally.

  • Intend to enroll (or be enrolled) in a full academic term in fall 2023 or a full academic year studying abroad in Korea.


  • Travel grant of up to $2,500 USD awarded directly to the student.

  • Upon returning to the U.S., an opportunity to participate in a panel discussion offered by the Society with other grantees to share insights on the value of studying abroad in the Republic of Korea.

  • This grant is made possible through the generous support of the CKD Kochon Foundation.
