TUITION FOR WON BUDDHIST STUDIES
AS OF AUGUST 2018
FINANCIAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Financial AId is offered in the form of scholarships and Federal Financial Aid.
SONG EUN SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Song Eun Scholarship is designed to help cover the tuition of any matriculated WBS student, full or part-time. Students interested in applying for the scholarship may contact the Registrar. Certificate students are not eligible for Song Eun funding unless they are full-time certificate students (taking 7.5 or more credits). The scholarship is offered in the Fall and Spring term.
SONG DOK SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Song Dok Scholarship is specifically designed for current matriculated Won Buddhist ministers who wish to enroll in Won Institute courses in the WBS program, and for American students who are enrolled in the PWBS program and intend to matriculate into the WBS program. The scholarship is offered in the Fall and Spring term. At the department chair’s discretion, the scholarship fund also may be made available to American WBS students who are not eligible for other institutional assistance, and for American PWBS students who do not intend to matriculate into the WBS program. These funds are available to help cover the tuition of both fulltime and part-time students. Scholarships are applied to the tuition costs at the beginning of the term. Withdrawal from a course prior to the end of the add/drop period will result in a proportional recalculation of the scholarship award.
The first step is to complete an application for financial aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The school code for the Won Institute is G39493. The FAFSA should be completed online at least one month prior to the start of classes, but maybe completed earlier. Won Institute students are eligible for a Direct Loan or a Direct Graduate Plus Loan. Information about these loans and how they differ is available from the Department of Education.
Institutional Aid Scholarship
The Institutional Aid Scholarship is a merit and need-based scholarship awarded to select members of the incoming class of students in the Acupuncture Studies and Chinese Herbal Medicine Certificate program. Individuals interested in applying must submit the Institutional Aid Application by August 1.
