NYU Abu Dhabi Alumna Awarded Prestigious Global Korea Scholarship
- Class of 2020 alumna, Emma Kay Tocci, has been awarded the Global Korea Scholarship to study Korean and complete a Master’s degree in International Studies-
Abu Dhabi – August 30, 2020: NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Class of 2020 alumna Emma Kay Tocci has been awarded the Global Korea Scholarship, a fully-funded program sponsored by the South Korean Ministry of Education. Tocci will travel to Daegu city to study language and culture for one year, before continuing to complete a master’s degree in Seoul.
NYUAD’s first GKS scholar, Tocci majored in Film and New Media at NYUAD and has a particular focus on understanding how new media technologies impact cross-border and political relationships. Originally from the US, Emma’s decision to immerse herself in another nation’s cultural and linguistic traditions was inspired by her experience in Abu Dhabi and being surrounded by NYUAD’s diverse student body. 
Speaking about the award, Tocci commented: “After four years at NYUAD, I assumed I would want to go back to the US; but as I found myself nearing graduation, I only wanted to challenge myself more. I had done something I never thought I could do - graduate from a University halfway around the world - so I figured learning a second language, something I have always assumed was impossible for me, may be within my reach after all.” 
After her year studying Korean in Daegu, Tocci will complete her master’s degree in International Cooperation at Seoul National University in the fall of 2021. Her research focus will be on the impact of mass media communication and globalization on foreign relations between civilians and governments.
“As a student at NYUAD, I was surrounded by people who spoke upwards of four to five languages, but despite loosely studying different languages, I was only conversational in one. Because my language has been accommodated everywhere I travel, I wanted to know what it’s like to bear the burden of communication, and express my thoughts in a different language,” Tocci concluded.
The GKS welcomes more than 700 students from across the world, providing international students with the chance to study in higher education establishments across South Korea. The scholarship promotes international exchanges in education between countries, alongside enhancing international understanding of Korean culture.
Students from NYUAD have received a wide range of global scholarships and awards since the University welcomed its first class in 2010, including the Rhodes Scholarship, the Fulbright Award, the Boren Award, the Yenching Scholarship, and the Schwarzman Scholarship, among others.
