미래가치를 창출하는 글로컬 산학일체 혁신대학
Going to School Free!
By Jeong Hyo-bin Reporter, Senior of Chemical and Biological Engineering
Every student in university has dreams about getting a scholarship. There is a wide range of scholarships that we can get, but many students don’t know about them. The easiest way to win a scholarship is in HBNU where you are enrolled. All enrolled students of HBNU can achieve their dreams by meeting the conditions of scholarships. Scholarships for students in our school are as shown in the table below.
The most important part for students who have entered in 2019 or later is the Unit of non-major activities. In order to receive a superb scholarship at HBNU, students must have good grades and meet the unit conditions. For the unit conditions, refer to the table below. You can participate in non-subject activities to collect these Units.
* Superb scholarship selection criteria
* Unit calculation period: January 1 to June 30 for the first semester, and July 1 to December 31 for the second semester.
* The unit condition can be any length, as they meet the criterion <Unit by Semester> or
< Accumulated Units >.
To learn more practical information and tips, I interviewed assistant Lee Soo-young, who is in charge of scholarships for the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.

Q. Can you explain “The detail standards separately designated by HBNU” for achieving a scholarship?
A. The Achievement scholarship is for students who have Language certificates (such as TOEIC, TOEFL, HSK, JPT, etc.), Computer Specialists in Spreadsheet & Database, and Word Processor Specialists. To get the Achievement scholarship, it is important to meet all of the conditions for certificates and high grades. If you meet these conditions of qualifications and have a grade that is higher than 4.0, then you can aim for the Achievement scholarship. There are different conditions about class A and class B for the scholarship. You must check the qualifications on the homepage.
If you want to get the Achievement scholarship continuously, you must get a higher level or score for language certificates. When you hope to get the scholarship, first you must have the required documents, such as a scholar application form, a certificate copy, and a transcript and you must visit the department office with those documents.
Q. Are there any special scholarships in other departments like the “Prof. Park Jang-woo scholarship” of the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering? What are the conditions that students must meet to get these scholarships?
A. Yes, there are special scholarships in other departments. In the Urban Engineering department, there is the “Prof. Kim Myung-soo scholarship”, and in the Material Science and Engineering department, there is “MTDI Love of Younger Friends from School scholarship.” You should check the exact conditions for each of those scholarships, because they are slightly different for each department.
In the case of the Park Jang-woo scholarship for Chemical and Biological Engineering, it is a scholarship designed to help students in poor circumstances. We prioritize such students, and also students with good grades, and give them scholarships.
Q. What conditions must be met to get other scholarships for the “Aid Association scholarship” or “Dae-gong scholarship”?
A. Those scholarships are supported from outside the school. Several scholarships, including those referred to, can be overlapped with other scholarships, due to the subsidiarity of living expenses.
Scholarships supported from outside HBNU have different qualification criterias and different values due to the significance of the scholarships. Every semester, these scholarships change to a different department. Therefore, if you work hard, you will get a scholarship.
The “Dae-gong scholarship” is for students who have financial difficulties, but still manage to achieve a good academic performance, or who have promoted the honor of HBNU through academic or other activities.
In the case of the “Academic and Cultural Research Foundation scholarship,” it is granted to students who have acquired at least 14 credits and have an average rating of at least 3.75, as of the previous semester. In the case of the final semester, scholarships are given to those with 11 or more credits.
The standards for other scholarships are listed on the previous page, so you can refer to them or check them on the website.
When you hope to get that scholarship, make sure you have the required documents, such as the scholar application form, a copy of a bank statement, and a letter of recommendation, and then visit the department office with those documents.
Q. Can you tell me about your experience of students who were not able to meet the requirements or qualifications to get a scholarship?
A. Unfortunately, when the department recommends students for a scholarship supported from outside of HBNU, there are often students who can not get a scholarship because they have not done volunteer work.
Every department has different conditions for giving scholarships to students. For example, having a specific amount of credits of majors, or having unit points. It is important to check the specifications with each department.
Scholarship opportunities are open to everyone, providing that all students become more diligent.
Q. Lastly, is there anything you want to say to the students?
A. HBNU spends most of the money supported by the foundation on scholarships. I hope you take care of your work so that many students can benefit.
In particular, freshmen need to take care of their units in advance so that they can get scholarships.
And there is an “Aid Association scholarship,” which is funded by donations from commercial districts around the school. The way to repay the commercial districts who donate while thinking about students is to regularly use the restaurants around the school.
As a senior who has already experienced semesters, giving advice to juniors about scholarships and other chances, such as language training or brilliant careers, was like my hidden mission. These opportunities are only for the students who come forward and look for them. If you frequently check the announcements and pay attention to the homepages, you will get a chance! Everyone hopes to be able to realize the college romance.
