The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), a world-leader in international education and student exchange, recently announced the acceptance of Mr. Howe Qiu to a prestigious scholarship to South Korea, which took place March 9-18, 2012. A University of Colorado Denver student, Howe was one of 75 university students selected to participate in the third annual South Korea Scholarship Program, which is referred to in Korea as the Korea – US Youth Network. Students were hosted by Yonsei University, South Korea’s oldest and most acclaimed university, which is located in Seoul. Participants attended academic lectures, tours, and cultural excursions throughout the duration of the program with the intention of fostering an understanding and diplomacy between the U.S. and South Korea.
CIEE has partnered with the Korea Foundation, a nonprofit organization aimed at promoting awareness and understanding of Korea throughout the international community and to enhance goodwill and friendship through the implementation of various international exchange programs.
On March 9th, 2012, Howe set off to represent the United States and the University of Colorado Denver. The program began in one of three U.S. gateway cities, where students were met by CIEE representatives who provided them with a pre-departure orientation in order to prepare them for their experience abroad.
