Scholarships take
students to S. Korea

Hawaii public school students in grades nine through 12 are encouraged to apply for scholarships to travel to South Korea this June on a free two-week study tour.

The Pacific and Asian Affairs Council will award 20 scholarships that cover air fare, in-country travel, lodging, meals and activities. They are funded by a $200,000 annual grant from the Freeman Foundation.

Students on the tour will get a close-up look at the Korean way of life. They will meet residents of a traditional folk village, tour the huge Hyundai Motor Factory in Ulsan and work with martial arts experts and Korean students.

Applications for the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council's Summer Study Tour are available at www.paachawaii.org/travel. They must be postmarked by March 4.

For information, contact Natasha Chappel at 944-7759 or hs@paachawaii.edu.

The council is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes knowledge of world affairs and offers outreach programs at Hawaii high schools and community colleges.
