    • 2. Students must not have any failing grades in the previous semester to be eligible for the academic excellence scholarship.
    • 3. Returning students must also apply during the application period to be eligible for a scholarship; returning students whose tuition is exempted are not eligible.

Scholarship Application Period

  • The scholarship application period shall be setup at the end of the semester that comes immediately before the semester a scholarship is received. For example, to receive a scholarship for the second semester of 2021 students must apply for it during the application period at the end of the first semester of 2021.
  • The application period will be notified on the university (undergraduate) website.

Scholarship Application Process

  • Go to SKKU GLS (Sungkyunkwan Intranet Service) – Application Requirement Management – Scholarship - Application menu, fill out an application form, and submit all of the relevant documents to your department's office.

Payment of Scholarships

  • Deductions in Tuition Statement: Scholarships are paid as deductions in tuition-statements. That means that the scholarship amounts is specified in a student's tuition statement which is mailed every semester, and they only need to pay what remains after the deduction.
  • Cash Payment (payment into student’s bank account or issuance of scholarship certificate): If a notice of reduction in tuition has already been made to a student but the scholarship recipient changes, then the new recipient will 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 will also be paid in cash. Also, scholarships from non-university scholarship foundations are paid in cash as well.
