The KSAF is officially recognized by Korea’s Ministry of Education. Our program is free for Korean students in the fifth income quintile who complete a certain number of credits and achieve certain grades. Students in the sixth income quintile and above may also be eligible for scholarships after review by a financial aid committee.

We offer students an extensive Work-Study Scholarship that can help cover costs not directly related to academics, such as health insurance, meals, books, and personal activities.

*International students admitted up to the year 2025 are eligible to apply for these scholarships.

One of the advantages of studying at Taejae University is that all students are fully funded to participate in our special study tours, including the Silicon Valley Tour in the United States and the Grand Tour of the History of Civilization in Europe. Taejae University also runs a post-graduation scholarship program to help students develop their careers after graduation, providing partial support for alumni to attend graduate school, join international organizations, or open startups. We are one of the only institutions in the world to offer this type of support.

Students who are accepted in March for the September semester may take the optional Praeparatorium course. This is designed to offer the foundation needed to follow our rigorous curriculum. The course is designed to help students improve their English proficiency, learn second foreign languages, and practice a programming language.
