GIST Students who participate in the Mobility Program may be eligible to receive additional scholarships or financial assistance from GIST. The amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis and will depend on a variety of factors, such as the cost of living and other considerations of the host institution's home country.
The Mirrae Asset Student Exchange Scholarship Program started in 2008 to fund students' study abroad opportunities so that they can experience different cultures to help them become global leaders in the future.
Selection Criteria & Application Requirements
GIST students need to be selected by their school or department. Please check the GIST International and Public Affairs website for more information as well as the Mirae Asset Scholarship Homepage (http://foundation.miraeasset.com) because the selection criteria changes every semester.
ASEM member countries form an exchange pair (Europe-Asia) between institutions. During the exchange, scholarships are provided through this program. ASEM-Duo offers scholarships for: Duo-Korea, Duo-France, and Duo-Singapore.
Which exchanges between countries qualify for this scholarship?
This is an exchange between ASEM member countries, so the applicant must check if their country is a member of ASEM. (There are 25 ASEM member countries: Greece, Denmark, Belgium, France, Finland, Germany, England, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Ireland, Austria, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, and Brunei.)
Duo-Korea exchanges with European ASEM member countries. Those applying through Duo-Korea must be affiliated with a Korean educational institution and must find a pair amongst one of the European ASEM member countries. If a European ASEM member country wishes to exchange with Korea, the Korean educational institution must find its pair, and then the applicant may apply to Duo-Korea through the Korean institution. But, a formal exchange agreement must exist between the Korean and European educational institutions. Scholarships will be provided to both students when selected. When forming pairs, the candidates must be of the same category (i.e. student-student).
* A student is defined as an individual enrolled in an degree program (undergraduate, masters, or Ph.D.) at an accredited educational institution.
Who can apply?
There are minor differences between programs. Current undergraduates, graduate students, and professors may participate in this program.
How can I apply?
The GIST Section of Public Affairs will inform you of the documents needed once the possibility of the 1:1 exchange with the European sister school has been confirmed. Students must then fill out an application and submit necessary documents to the International Relations Team.
Do all applicants receive scholarships?
No, because The ASEM-Duo Scholarship Foundation determines qualifications and eligibility of scholarship recipients.
