ACTS Grants & Scholarship

AIGS diligently seeks many ways to provide grants and bursaries to all international students who are in need of financial aid. AIGS arranges ‘ACTS Great Commission Scholarship’ (AGCS) and also provides all enrolled international students with the ACTS Matching Fund (AMF) which covers most of the study expenses. For receiving both the ACTS Grant as AGCS and ACTS Scholarship as AMF, all enrolled international students MUST submit to the AIGS Office in each semester by March 31 and by September 30 (1) the scholarship application form and (2) the each copy of their current bank account book opened in Korea, saying (a) the first page showing student’s name and account information, and (b) the last page showing student’s account balance. Then this portion of scholarship is fully covered by ACTS that comprises of:
