GNMP

Global NGO Masters’ Program (GNMP) is fully funded scholarship program. The May 18 Memorial Foundation and the May 18 Institute at Chonnam University offer a master's program for Global NGO activists with a full scholarship. The GNMP welcomes individuvvals who are passionately engaged with human rights, democracy, and peace and are eager to become professional NGO workers and leaders.

Being launched in 2016 as a theoretical and practical educational platform for NGO activists, the program aims to educate global NGO workers who work in the fields of social enterprises, international relations, social services, and advocacy and volunteer organizations in the world. We encourage anyone with passion to bring positive changes to their societies through human rights activism, democratization, local community development, building solidarity across borders, and humanitarian acts.

The program also aims to share the May 18 Spirit and to expand knowledge about the May 18 Gwangju Democratic Uprising. During the school years students will have an excellent chance to know and trace the May 18 Spirit and the history of the democracy movement in Korea as well. We believe that through NGO workers’ global networking and solidarity across borders a democratic civil society will become a reality.
