DUO-Korea Fellowship for European Exchange Students

DUO-Korea Fellowship Program was established in 2001 with the aim of promoting exchanges of people between Korea and European countries (only the 27 EU member-countries) on a balanced and permanent basis. In this respect, DUO-Korea requires that a PAIR (two persons) of students, teachers, and professors be exchanged in the framework of a cooperative project.

  • Pair exchanges

    two-way exchange of people between two educational institutions, one from Europe and the other from Korea;

  • Standardized stay duration in “unit”
    • for students, one unit is one semester (four months)
    • An €8,000 fellowship amount for students is subsidized per pair for one unit (four months).
Duration and amount of DUO-Korea Fellowship

DUO-Korea 2010 applies to the exchange projects that will start from August 2010 and will end before September 2011, to avoid duplicating the implementation period of the exchange projects selected by DUO-Korea 2011. The selection of DUO-Korea 2010 exchange projects is made ONLY once a year.
Those who are planning to exchange in Fall Semester 2010 or Spring Semester 2011 should apply for DUO-Korea 2010. For more information, go to
