Kinds of Scholarship in South Korea

University Scholarships

University Scholarships are few and hard to get, but good than professor scholarship as in this case you will not be depended on money by the professor.

Professor Scholarships

This solely depends on the professor and the university does not give you money in this case. These are easy to get but hard to maintain sometimes, because sometimes if the professor is not happy with your performance, then he can give you financial problems.

How to Contact a Supervisor

When you are planning for a Ph.D. or Masters by research program, two kinds of funding opportunities can be availed. The first option is to apply for a scholarship program that covers everything including your Flight Ticket, Settle-in Allowance, Books Allowance, Tuition Fee, and Monthly Stipend which is mostly tax-free. The scholarships like this are very good but limited in number.

Another option is getting funding support from a supervisor professor, where you need to work on some specific research problem/project under the supervision of the professor.

Finding a Supervisor, Know him well

Avoid Casual Language: Your email should be very formal without the use of any casual language and check twice for your abbreviation which you frequently use with your friends etc. For example, writing short for you as ‘ur’, thanks as ‘thnx’, ‘R U fine?’ and others. You can check How to Reach out to the Professors for Scholarship?

Subject of Email

The subject of the email is very important as professors are very busy and would not spend time reading all emails in their inbox; the subject line is to catch their attention. Write like ‘Interested in Research area _____ with your group’ or similar.

Do tell him how you found him. Professors are always keen to know this, as it also indicates how serious were you to join his group and did not try a thousand email addresses in a go-to try your luck.

Never forget to attach a CV and ideas about your expected area of research. Do not attach all those award certificates and transcripts at this point in time.

Review Email

Check all the grammar, spelling, typos, and similar careless mistakes. These would not put a good impression on finishing your work. Conclude your email well, ask him to talk more about your ambitions, and do let you know if need more information.
