The Institute of Korean Studies for Foreign Students is offering two opportunities for students (Blessed Children) in the US to study and learn the Korean language in Seoul, South Korea.

The GOP program will be entering its 29th year this autumn. Founded by our True Parents, the GOP program offers those students, ages 12 -- 14, entering 7th and 8th grades, the opportunity to study the Korean language, become familiar with Korean culture and tradition, travel throughout the Fatherland, participate in key Unification Church activities, while living with boys and girls from around the world. All guidelines and documents, related to the GOP program and application process, as well as newsletters from the current GOP year, can be found on a special GOP application website, in the member's only section of the website.

In response to requests for educational opportunities for older students, the Institute of Korean Studies has established a new language program for students from 15 -- 20 years old, entitled the Korean Language Program (KLP). The KLP will provide Korean language classes for four hours a day, five days a week, for 38 weeks, beginning early in September 2010. Those students age 15 -- 17 may continue with their western courses on a home school basis. Those students age 18 -- 20 will have the opportunity to gain leadership experience with the GOP program by becoming a "prefect." The approximate cost of this program is $7,290 per student.

For more information about this program, as well as for the application documents, please email Alexa Ward.
