◆ Introduction

With the generous donations from the Korean government and universities, InKAS grants scholarships for Korean international adoptees over the age of 18. Learning about Korean culture begins with a proper education and therefore, knowing the Korean language is perhaps the most critical step in understanding Korean culture. Because we believe that the Korean education can also be a therapeutic process for many Korean adoptees in their personal identity search, our scholarship service is by far the most administered service InKAS offers and strongly suggests. 

  ◆ Type of schools and classes

When applying for a scholarship, you must choose which semester and school you want to attend.  The schools might have some differences in the curriculum, but they all offer high quality classes with many talented teachers and diverse students.

The scholarship is available for morning classes only.  The classes usually run four hours a day, Monday through Friday from 9am to 1pm.  Our scholarship does not cover evening classes anymore.

1. Application
- During the application process, you will be able to apply for a scholarship through your InKAS account.  Each applicant is required to upload and submit additional documents after selecting their three top school choices as well as writing a brief introduction. The required documents are as follows:
