I might say, the KAIST’s scholarship system is very good. Almost all students received enough scholarship to study from the nation. Moreover, they have also good dormitory system, so they don’t have to spend almost their money to attend the school.

I can’t help thinking they are in great environment. In Japan, there are no universities that have a great system like this. (Tokyo University has a unique system to support not rich students but it can’t support all of its students.)

I think, the scholarship system is more effective for education than child allowance. I appreciate the Japanese goverment’s attitude that changed direction of budget to education from other things, but it can grow only a literacy rate never competitiveness of the nation. It’s because dole-out policy can’t contribute to higher education. 

Japan is a trading nation. We have to sell things that other countries don’t have, it’s like product, technology or service. For making them, higher educaiton is one of the most important parts to distinguish other countries.

The higher education needs students’ strong will like “I want to make this.”, “I want to innovate this thing.”, but dole-out policy can’t make student will. It’s because the government can’t evaluate students’ will at all with dole-out. I think the government should invest to the students who have will and brilliantness.

I know Korean current scholarship system is not perfect, because not all of other universitiies’ are good. However, there are many points I can study.

I think higher education system deeply relate with employment. I try to consider this problem with a view to innovation of employment after this.
