    1. Then, by all means, try to apply. Even though the application procedure is a little bit stressful and as such, somewhat discouraging, we all know nothing good comes easy. Ensure you are eligible for the scholarship, then prepare the required documents and proceed to the Korean embassy, consulate or missions office for further instructions. All the best!
