Scholarship / Accounting - Statement of purpose for POSCO Scholarship [4]

You should be specific to impress the readers. The part where you mention doing internship, you need to mention 2-3 well known firms or companies in korea where you would like to do internships. Remember, being specific is key.

Goal of study & Study Plan

My main educational objective is to obtain an undergraduate degree in microbiology and to have an in-depth knowledge of Korean culture. I have had a keen interest in microbiology, and diseases caused by microbes since I was a child. Moreover, I have a passion for helping people who are susceptible to pathogens by providing knowledge about immunity and how to take proper prevention or cure measures. I believe, my passion to contribute to the community, with the desire to do chosen things with perfection would help me to achieve the best result as a student.

All of us are humans and just like any other human, I get burnt out when I spend the majority of my day continuously working without taking a break. Therefore, I use some study techniques that match my pace. Firstly, I would create a realistic schedule in google calendar with appropriate breaks. This would help me track my progress and feel excited about completing my task as a reward in the form of a break awaits me. I do so in order to not overwhelm myself with the thought of completing work as doing so would make me feel stressed and would lead to me procrastinating the work instead of getting it done. Including breaks in my schedule would make me feel reassured that I would have time to take a break and this break won't ruin my overall schedule.

As I enter the academic year I would put all my effort into studying and spend most of my time reading thesis materials in the library. Being a person who is striving to know more, I would try my best to acquire knowledge from any other opportunities that I would find like conference training, seminars, and comprehensive lectures, and doing my research papers and experiments together with my professors. I would also make sure to pass all of my academic courses with a GPA of 3.5 or 4. Through attending this undergraduate program I plan to team up with fellow undergraduate students to tackle individual pathogenic health issues. I would note down every assignment and test schedule using google calendar and notes so that I could reduce my burden by completing a small portion of the task daily.

Before I start my academic year, I would go through my universities website so that I could train myself to be the model student that the universities are looking for in a student. I would download a copy of their academic calendar so that I can schedule my study plans in advance for the upcoming semester exams. Before my classes, I would read the topics that would be taught in the class so that I can avoid asking trivial doubts and also avoid getting bored in class as I can prepare genuine doubt on the topic being taught in advance. It would also pose as a revision method for me. Through this unique experiences and cultural backgrounds that each of the participants possesses, I also plan to conduct thorough research and experiments on how microbiology can help resolve individual and community issues, especially in the urban and rural areas of both India and Korea. I look forward to being an active participant and a willing student ready to learn from rich and diverse experiences present in the classroom and I would always be active in my university life. I will always take all the newly learned things as an opportunity and would devote my time to increasing my expertise in microbiology practically and theoretically. Lastly, when I am awarded this scholarship, I would contribute my innovative ideas and knowledge to the development of research at my university and to society by implementing my problem-solving skills and expertise into practice. I would do my best to be an asset to the university. I have the ability to self-study. After class, I would watch educational YouTube videos on my syllabus to understand what was taught in class on a deeper level.

I would participate in sports, volunteering work, workshops, and clubs so that I can gain experiences and certificates which would make my resume look presentable. It would also help me improve my leadership and communication skills, teaching me the value of group work. I want to maximize my productivity and make the most out of this scholarship. I would attend private tuition and buy study materials to build a strong base on my major.

Once my semester ends, I would invest my free time in preparing for the next semester by reading over thesis materials. I would also look for internship offers and would do part-time jobs related to my major like a microbiology lab assistant. If given an opportunity, I would also like to drop by my university research lab to help my professors with their ongoing research work. I would read research papers published by my professors and other professors belonging to my field. Then I would email professors whose research work attracted me, requesting a temporary lab assistant or internship position in their lab. I would also like to publish my own research someday, thus I would also email professors, asking if I could conduct my own research under their assistance and possibly publish it one day. By the last week of my vacation, I would reach out to my professors, thanking them for their dedicated investment in my education, and also letting them know that I am excited for the next semester.

Scholarship / I am interested in Kpop. 2023 GKS-U language study plan to improve foreign languages. [6]

You need to mention clear plan on how you are planning to achieve topik level 5 within 1 year. Maybe try mentioning study methods you use and specify time and date. As for English I think it's better not to elaborate too much on that and waste space. Utilise that space instead to write more about how you'd improve your korean.

Undergraduate / I quickly grasp the learning concepts; GKS UNDERGRADUATE STUDY PLAN - PUSAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY [3]

language STUDY PLAN

Language Study Plan o Study plans to improve Korean/English language ability required for taking a degree course before and after you come to Korea.

Before coming to Korea I had dedicated my free time to learning basic Korean grammar and vocabulary. In 2019 I learned to read and write Hangul out of curiosity. I installed free Korean learning apps like Duolingo and Naver Papago which provided interactive and beginner-friendly levels. It helped me build a strong Korean base as it had both visual and audio learning options which helped me learn Korean words and phrases with ease. In addition, I also made sure to spend a minimum of 5 hours with a ten-minute break between each hour for learning Korean grammar and vocabulary from YouTube every morning during my summer vacation. I took notes in points, made flashcards on topics I had trouble learning, and made mind maps to make learning Korean fun and easy. (mind maps: a diagram in which information is represented visually, usually with a central idea placed in the middle and associated ideas arranged around it.) Taking ten-minute breaks between my strict 5-hour Korean learning schedule made me less likely to burn out from exhaustion and I felt refreshed and excited to learn every time I came back from a break.

Making Flashcards helped me to refresh my memory on previous topics I had learned and to link and study grammar rules which otherwise I would have found confusing to learn without understanding the context. I am going to follow the same study techniques and materials to improve my knowledge of both the Korean language and my microbiology course. One of my hobbies is singing, and Korean songs caught my attention. I used to write down lyrics in Hangul and practice singing. This helped me to increase my speed while reading Hangul. Reading books is also one of my hobbies. Once I reach a point in my language course where I can read and understand the language, I would prefer to read one Korean book per day to further improve my Korean. I am confident in my English speaking and writing skills. I developed a hobby out of reading books from a very young age and had read over six to seven novels over my 2022 summer vacation alone. I read books every night and I believe this had a huge positive impact on widening my English vocabulary. I went to an English medium school and being able to communicate with my peers and teachers in English for over 14 years of my life had also played a huge role in developing my skill in the language. Upon arriving in Korea, I will dedicate my time to learning the Korean language and familiarizing myself with the culture. Since Korean culture is similar to my culture in regard to respecting elders, I love the culture. By watching Korean news and documentaries in the Korean language, I would like to expose myself to the culture, update myself on current topics, and utilize it to expand my knowledge of the language.

Upon arriving in Korea I would dedicate my first year to studying the Korean language and culture. During my quarantine, I would invest a majority of my time in studying Korean from pdf files including 'TOPIK in 30 Days' and 'TOPIK Essential Grammar 150' by Kim Joo Yeon. I plan to spend the winter and summer vacation of my language year traveling around Korea and learning more about the country's culture while participating in community work. I will make sure to participate in every cultural activity available. Furthermore, I would also put into practice all the learning I would have during the language training years. I would participate in language exchange programs where I could learn Korean by conversing with Koreans and would in return teach them English.

My goal is to get TOPIK level 4 or higher within 5-6 months. From 2022-23 I will go to the library to study. Surrounding myself with people who are busy studying makes me less likely to divert my attention from my work and also motivates me to concentrate on my studies. I meditate daily for a minimum of ten minutes as doing so had helped me in my past to reduce stress and anxiety caused by overworking myself. It had also helped me increase my concentration. Similarly, exercising, journaling, and walking short distances also helped me increase my productivity. These are some practices that I had implemented into my daily routine since I was a high school student and I had been following it religiously, making sure not to miss a single day unless I had a busy schedule or I had been down with a fever.

When pursuing my language course in Korea, I would be active in class. I will not miss a single day of classes unless I am ill. Additionally, I would practice what was taught in class every day for 8 hours so that I can clear the TOPIK level 4 as soon as possible. I would visit the I would create study groups with friends so that we can learn Korean together and clear each other's doubts. I would participate in the language exchange clubs at my university. In this way, we would not only be helping the other person but would also be learning in the process. I would listen to Korean podcasts on Korea's current affairs, microbiology, or Korean culture, watch Korean documentaries on microbiology and Korean history, and would read Korean newspapers daily to further my knowledge.

My goal is to clear TOPIK level 5 by the end of my language training program. I would achieve this by disciplining myself and following daily study goals that I would set for myself religiously. I would spend 8 hours daily with a 10-minute break between each hour of my study sessions. This is to avoid possible burnout and stress caused by studying continuously with no break. Furthermore, I would write down words or grammar points that I find difficult on sticky notes and stick them on my study desk so that I can revise them every time I sit down to study. Even after my 1-year language course, I would continue to study Korean so that I could achieve level 6. I would buy TOPIK practice books and practice previous year's question papers which would help me learn frequently asked questions and important portions of the syllabus from an exam point of view. I would set a timer and solve previous year's TOPIK papers to increase my speed and reduce exam anxiety. I would borrow notes made by my seniors who had previously attained TOPIK 6. I would read Korean newspapers daily. This would not only help me improve my speed of reading but also stay updated on current topics in Korea and to also understand more about the culture.

If there is a portion of the syllabus that I would find difficult to learn I would ask my teachers or peers for help. Once I reach a level in my Korean language course where I could read and understand Hangul at a decent level, I would watch movies in other languages with Korean subtitles too. Since Korean grammar is similar in structure to my mother tongue Malayalam, I can quickly grasp its concepts. Thus, I would link the sentences I am learning to my language and learn them easily rather than in English.
