Work and Study Scholarship

Students may have the opportunity to off-set their travel and living expenses by participating in a work and study program. U.S. students teach English for twenty hours per week and earn a salary (approximately $700 per semester for Fall 2013 if working the maximum number of hours allowed). Students do not need prior training in English language teaching or in teaching and may choose their own topics to teach. Students will partner up with a Korean student, meet several times a week, and exchange languages. Students study full-time in addition to working through the work/study program. Students will work directly with Kookmin University if interested in this possibility.
