Scholarship for Asian Universities

Purpose

A foundation for all POSCO Asia Fellowships Programs to build upon

Outbound program: Scholarship for Asian Universities

By establishing cooperative relationships with excellent universities in Asia, the Foundation hopes that local students can concentrate on their studies through the scholarship programs.

This scholarship fosters next-generation Asian talent by supporting carefully selected talent, who are enrolled in prestigious universities in over 10 Asian countries which are in partnership with the Foundation. Each year, over 300 students are selected for the provision of scholarships in consideration of local tuition, and the presentation ceremony held at the local university is attended by local government officials from the Korean Embassy, former scholars of Foundation that returned home, and POSCO Asia Fellowship. Also, the Foundation would like to expand this scholarship program to graduate school.

Reasons to build this program

The fellowship program for students at outstanding universities in Asia is designed to provide scholarships to excellent students studying at Asian universities who hold cooperative relationships with the Foundation.

In Asia, there are cultural similarities between numbers of countries. At the same time, their features are also clearly distinguishable. Therefore, collaboration with the university is essential to forming a regional network which allows for exchange and communication with respecting diversities.

The POSCO TJ Park Foundation is proud of the first private-sector scholarship project in the Asian region by selecting and supporting excellent young students.

Through this program, the Foundation hopes to introduce its POSCO Asia Fellowship programs to as much of Asia as possible and generate opportunities for greater cooperation between Asian countries.
