Ada High School grad receives scholarship to study in South Korea

Ada —  

CIEE, the world leader in international education and exchange, announces that Andie Jewett, a sophomore at Oklahoma State University, was recently selected as one of 40 U.S. university students to study in South Korea during spring break as part of the fifth annual CIEE South Korea Scholarship program. 

As a CIEE South Korea Scholar, Ms. Jewett will spend March 17-26 at Yonsei University — South Korea’s oldest and most acclaimed university — located in Seoul attending academic lectures, going on cultural tours, and participating in excursions to historically and culturally important areas of the country. Each activity, from introductory language classes to a trip to the Demilitarized Zone, is specifically designed to immerse students in South Korea’s unique culture, customs, language, and people.

The CIEE South Korea Scholarship program, known in Korea as the Korea – U.S. Youth Network, is made possible through CIEE’s close partnership with the Korea Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at promoting awareness and understanding of Korea throughout the international community and enhancing goodwill and friendship through the implementation of various international exchange programs. The ultimate goal of the scholarship program is to foster an understanding and diplomacy between the U.S. and South Korea by exposing Korean culture to a wide range of U.S. students from diverse backgrounds.

Jewett is a 2011 graduate of Ada High School and the daughter of Katherine and David Jewett, Ada.
