    Five KU students selected for First President’s Graduate Scholarship in Science

    Five KU graduate students were selected for the First President’s Graduate Scholarship in Science.

    The Ministry of Science and ICT selected its first scholarship recipients this year with the goal of discovering master’s and doctoral students with great potential in science and engineering to motivate them and support the development of world-class human resources in research. A total of 120 scholarship recipients (50 master’s and 70 doctoral students) were selected this year, representing a competition rate of approximately 25 to 1.

    Five KU graduate students were also selected: Lee Seung-yeon, master’s student in the Department of Artificial Intelligence; Park Seo-yeon, master’s student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering; Seong Jae-hyeop, doctoral student in the School of Electrical Engineering; Park Ju-ha, master’s student in the School of Electrical Engineering; and Lee Seung-min, student in integrated master-doctoral degree programs in the School of Biomedical Engineering.

    ▲ Lee Seung-yeon, a master’s student in the Department of Artificial Intelligence, is studying in Professor Han Jae-ho’s lab on Neuro AI through the development of brain principle-based multimodal processing AI.

    ▲ Park Seo-yeon, a master’s student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, is studying in Professor Kang Jae-woo’s lab on drug development using AI.

    ▲ Park Ju-ha and Seong Jae-hyeop, a master’s student and a doctoral student in the School of Electrical Engineering, respectively, are studying in Professor Shin Won-jae’s lab on the theories of next-generation wireless communication.

    ▲ Lee Seung-min, a graduate student in the School of Biomedical Engineering, is studying in Professor Yoon Dae-sung’s lab on a high-sensitivity point-of-care rapid antigen test method using an AI-based deep learning algorithm.

    The graduate scholarship recipients will receive a total of 18 million KRW per year (maximum 36 million KRW for four semesters) for a master’s course and a total of 24 million KRW per year (maximum 96 million KRW for eight semesters) for a doctoral course with a scholarship certificate from the President of Korea.
