Korean Flagship Program

THIS IS AN APPLICATION TO AN ACADEMIC, NON-DEGREE PROGRAM FOR UW-MADISON UNDERGRADUATES. THIS IS NOT A SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Korean Flagship Program welcomes applications from UW-Madison undergraduates of all majors and at any level of prior experience in Korean. This innovative undergraduate program offers highly-motivated students the opportunity to reach a professional level of competence in Korean by graduation.

The program has two priority deadlines:

  • November 15, for those who want to begin in the spring.
  • March 15, for those who want to begin in the summer or fall.

Before starting the application, please make sure to gather the following documents and information:

  • Transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended (other than UW-Madison). Electronic versions of transcripts can be uploaded in the online application form. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable. If you are a high school senior (who has been admitted to UW-Madison), or a first-year student at UW-Madison, please also submit your high school transcript.
  • Statement of purpose (500 words): Why are you interested in the UW-Madison Korean Flagship Program? How does the program fit with your educational and career goals? In answering these questions, describe experiences that you have had to date that prepare you for this intensive program.
  • Self-evaluation of Korean language proficiency.
  • Two letters of recommendation, submitted to the Korean Flagship Program on or before the application deadline. At least one letter should be from a foreign language teacher; if you have studied Korean before, at least one letter must be from one of your Korean instructors.
