About the Korea-LAC Scholarship Program (KLSP)

 

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 Management (MPM, Tracks: i) Public Management; ii) Public Policy) in English at the Graduate School of Governance (GSG), Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) in Korea.

 

Requirements and Deadlines

 

To be admitted to the MPM program, applicants must display that they are academically, mentally, and physically prepared to face the challenges of a highly demanding MPM curriculum. Applicants who hold a degree from any undergraduate program can apply. In the screening and selection process, the applicants academic interest and work experience will be considered. Preferably, applicants should be a mid-level public official with at least considerable experience (i.e., preferably at least 5 years) in the field of public management and public policy. All documents including application form, self-introduction, study plan, official transcript (undergraduate and graduate work), diploma or certificate of graduation, recommendation letters, employment verification, etc. will be evaluated. Detailed information on application requirements, process, and deadlines are provided below.
