* Ewha University is on a quarterly academic calendar that does not line up well with Yale's academic calendar. As a result, Light Fellows studying at Ewha usually choose to do so for either the Summer or Academic Year.

Language coursework is supplemented with extracurricular cultural activities. This program emphasizes high level reading and writing and may be well suited to students who already have a high level of speaking proficiency.  Students seeking opportunities to improve spoken fluency will need to be proactive about finding language partners outside of class.  Most students live off campus in self-arranged housing.  Although hosted at a women's university, the Ewha Korean language program is co-ed.

Program Application Notes:

  • Applications typically will not open until after Light Fellowship results are announced. It is your responsibility to check the application deadlines, but we recommend applying after you know your Light Fellowship results and only applying to the program you intend on attending. To our knowledge, Light Fellows have not had difficulty getting into their top choice programs in Korea.

Light Fellowship Application Notes:

  • Ewha is on a quarterly academic calendar, so Fellows applying for Academic Year funding should apply for the fall, winter, and spring quarters at Ewha.
