USC Student Awarded the Global Korea Scholarship


gamedayThe South Korean Ministry of Education awarded Emilie Dawson the Global Korea Scholarship to assist with her study abroad experience during the upcoming fall semester in Seoul, South Korea.

Emilie Dawson is a fourth-year, public relations major in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina (USC). In the fall, Dawson will be studying abroad at Sogang University in South Korea through the USC Study Abroad Office’s global exchange program.  Dawson’s goal while abroad in Korea is to learn how the business of public relations is conducted in Korean society and compare Korean skills and processes to those of the United States. 

Studying abroad in Korea would be an amazing experience to me because of my major, Public Relations, and how PR centric their society has become,” said Dawson. 

Dawson also plans to study Korean language while taking courses in Mass Communication Theory, Visual Planning and Production, and Media Sociology. Finding the exchange program that matched her desire to learn about public relations in a nontraditional location like South Korea was “pure serendipity,” according to Dawson. 

The Global Korea Scholarship is a scholarship supported by the government of the Republic of Korea that is awarded to an exchange student who begins his or her exchange program beginning fall semester for one full semester. The scholarship covers monthly allowance from September to December, a one-time settling-in fee, round-trip airfare, and insurance in Korea. These expenses amount to approximately 4,238,000 KRW, or $4,200 USD. 

The purpose of the Global Korea Scholarship is to produce joint understanding between world countries by assisting students in their pursuit of international education. The scholarship requires its recipients to submit an experience report to the Office of International Affairs at Sogang University. Recipients are also required to hold at least one information session on study abroad to Korea with the support of the Study Abroad Office at their home institution and take at least one course in Korean language or Korean Studies during the semester.
