The Korea-LAC Scholarship Program (KLSP) at the GSG, SKKU
Improving Public Management in
Latin America and the Caribbean
Quality public management is a powerful tool for generating further development. Dynamic civil servants with the skills necessary to design, implement and evaluate successful public policies are essential for attaining this goal. The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), with the financial support of the Korea Poverty Reduction Fund, has launched the Korea-LAC Scholarship Program (KLSP). KLSP aims at strengthening the public sector workforce of the 22 eligible Latin American and Caribbean countries. Under this initiative, a group of 12 mid-level public officials will receive full academic scholarships to study a Master's program in public policy or management in English at the Graduate School of Governance, Sungkyunkwan University in Korea. The program will commence on September 1, 2016 for 18 months.
