Since January 2011, the Korean Federation has been working with the National Institute for International Education (KITA) to run a mentoring program for foreign female college students (university students / graduate students) who have received Korean government scholarships.
Countries and students participating in the mentoring program
In 2018 (Countries) : 20, Number of students : 29)
Mentees are selected on the recommendation of the National Institute for International Education and, in some cases, recommended by the university. The selected mentees will be handed over to the local club after orientation which provided by Federation. BPW members become one-to-one mentors, conducting a variety of individual programs for one year. Mentors provide information about Korea's culture and history, resolve issues with mentees, and develop mutual relationships. Mentees can get the knowledge and information they need when they enter the society through language exchanges and cultural exchanges, as well as mentors of professional occupations.
Through this program, the Korea Federation not only contributes to the improvement of the national image, but also expects the mentees to play a role of connecting Korea with their own countries when they return to their own countries. We also hope to join BPW in the country to learn systematic leadership and become a professional woman.
