      (however, returning students whose tuition is exempted are not eligible).
Scholarship Application Period
  • The scholarship application period shall be established at the end of the semester that comes immediately before the scholarship receiving semester. For example, to receive a scholarship for the second semester of 2014, students must apply for scholarship during the scholarship application period at the end of the first semester of 2014.
  • Students must check announcements for the application period on the university (undergraduate) website.
Scholarship Application Process

Students can apply for scholarships through SKKU Intranet Service.

  • The application process is as follows:

1. Go to SKKU GLS (Sungkyunkwan Intranet Service) – Application Requirement Management – Scholarship - Application menu.

2. Students need to fill out an application form and submit all relevant documents to your department office.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarships are given out in two ways :

  • Deduction in Tuition Statement
    • Scholarships shall be paid on a deduction-in-tuition-statement basis. Deduction in tuition statement means that the sum of scholarships will be specified in the tuition statement mailed every semester, and that students only need to pay the difference: the amount is the tuition after having the scholarship deducted.
  • Cash Payment (payment into student’s bank account or issuance of scholarship certificate)
    • If a notice of reduction in tuition is already made to a student but there is a change in the scholarship recipient, then the new recipient shall receive the scholarship in cash. If a student who is the recipient of a continuous scholarship returns to school after a leave of absence, the student’s scholarship shall also be paid in cash. Also, the payment of scholarships from non-university scholarship foundations shall be paid in cash as well.
Registering Scholarship Receiving Account

Registering an account for scholarships can be done through SKKU Intranet (GLS):

Go to GLS (Application Requirement Management – Scholarship Application – Scholarship Receipt menu) and fill out your account information (your own account only).

Application for Off-Campus Scholarships from Scholarship Foundations

When SKKU receives a request from scholarship foundations for student recommendations, the details will be posted regularly on the SKKU or department website.

Students willing to receive a scholarship from other scholarship foundations need to check the notice board regularly.
