Basic Principles of the Law School Scholarship System
- The percentage of scholarship provided for the purpose of living expenses is kept at 90% of the total amount of scholarship.
- The scale of scholarship benefits (school expenditure/fund/out-of-school scholarships) for students is managed to maintain 31.6% or more of the tuition revenue.
- Students admitted through the special admission process for low family budget (those who get support for the basic living expenses or are from lower income family) can receive 100% tuition during their period of attendance as long as they maintain the minimum academic standards.
- The level of scholarship provided to students is divided into 100%, 50%, and 25%, allowing more students to benefit from scholarship.
- The total amount of scholarship provided to each grade level is maintained at the same level.
- In addition to scholarships provided by the school expenditure, the Law School is expanding its own scholarship fund and is actively connecting with out-of-school scholarship foundations.
- In principle, a student may receive only one type of scholarship, meaning double receipt is not allowed.
- For a student who gives up his/her scholarship of academic excellence for another student’s scholarship for living expenses, an honorary scholarship will be presented.
- Associated with the Korea Student Aid Foundation, KU Law supports students to benefit from the government guaranteed student loan system.
Selection Principle for Scholarship Recipients
- Recipients of scholarship for living expenses are selected each semester through a rigorous procedure, including application to the scholarship foundation to assess the income quintile each semester and evaluation of the household finance situation in writing.
- Recipients of scholarship for academic excellence -amount of 100%, 50%, 25% of tuition- are selected each semester based on the GPA of the previous semester.
- Recipients of out-of-school scholarship foundation or funded scholarship are selected among the applicants based on the selection criteria provided by the scholarship foundation.
- The selection procedure for any scholarship recipient is conducted rigorously through the deliberation by the Director of the Student Department and the Scholarship Committee.
