KOICA’s Scholarship Program
With a mission to nurture talented students from developing countries, KOICA invites high-caliber students from developing countries and helps them gain professional and systematic knowledge that will play a key role in their home country’s development.
To accomplish this mission, KOICA has been operating master’s degree courses with leading Korean universities in the fields of economics, trade, women’s empowerment, rural development, etc.
In particular, this program has significantly strengthened the relationships between Korea and the students’ home countries.
