Get the unbelievable benefits!

‘Well begun is half done’. When the application is completed, you are half done. Then CJ Cultural Foundation will conduct two screening sessions, document and interview, and will select the final scholarship student. There are two main benefits for scholarship student selected under the fair procedure. Let's take a closer look at the benefits.


1. CJ Presidential Scholarship

It's a benefit of providing scholarships to one of the best students among freshmen entering this year for anything required during their academic life. If you are selected as this scholarship student (cj presidential scholarship), the scholarship will fully fund not only for the tuition but also for in-school life.
Many international students often have difficulties in balancing between working part-time and school because they have to cover their living expenses. Isn't it a great benefit to supplement these practical problems?


2. CJ Music Scholarship

You might think, "Then, only one scholarship student is to be selected?" But it’s not. The benefits we introduced previously are scholarships for one of the best students, but this CJ music scholarship is little different.
CJ Music Scholarship selects up to five top students from freshmen in 2020 and offers a scholarship of $16,000 a year. In particular, this benefit is even more special because it is a 1:1 matching scholarship, with the CJ Cultural Foundation and Berkeley College of Music each offering $8,000.


3. Common Benefits

CJ Music Scholarship Program provides scholarships for up to four years for up to six students, but that's not the end! The CJ Cultural Foundation supports not only financial support but also active music career.
CJ Azit Gwangheungchang is there for you to do your music activities! You can record your own music here, or you can have a concert where you can enjoy music with many jazz lovers. And from this year on, there will also be some performances at CJ Azit Daehangno, as well as opportunities for music education to enlarge your experience.
