Yonsei University in Korea invites applications for the Incoming student awards and the dean’s scholarships for international students in the 2019/20 academic year.
Yonsei was founded by Christian missionaries in 1885 and is the oldest private university in Korea. Ever since its humble beginnings, Yonsei has been at the forefront of higher education in Korea. Yonsei’s establishment coincided with Korea’s initial forays into the modern international system and since then, it has played a vital role as a gateway for multicultural and multinational exchanges. Similarly, as one of Korea’s leading windows to the world, Yonsei has enabled generations of leaders to explore new frontiers, and in the process, to become more aware of the responsibilities of global citizenship. Yonsei’s
pioneering role as a conduit of knowledge flowing in and out of Korea continues to be a hallmark of its educational philosophy.
