Arum Scholarships for Korean Language

Annual Arum Scholarships for Korean Language Study

Scholarships of $500 each are available for the spring semester for UMCP students in Korean language courses.  These scholarships represent the generous gift of a local Korean businessman who wishes to encourage the study of Korean. 

Students are chosen on the basis of academic merit, motivation, progress in learning Korean, and active involvement in the activities of the Korean class and desire to continue learning Korean.  Recipients will be expected to register for the next higher level of Korean language at the University of Maryland.

For consideration of the award, students must have a “B” or higher (midterm) average in Korean.  They must also submit:

·      Application form

·      A short essay (2 pages double spaced) on one of the following topics: 

                (1) “How Does Studying Korean Make a Difference in my Life?”

                (2) “How I Can Contribute to Korea and America by Studying Korean

                (3) “My Experience with Korean Culture and Beyond”
