**CSU Students Sponsored by Hyundai Motor Group for Summer Abroad Program**

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) – A distinctive study abroad opportunity awaits Columbus State University students this summer as the Hyundai Motor Group (HMG) generously sponsors a trip to South Korea.

With a substantial investment of $60,000, the initiative, now known as “HMG Scholars,” will cover fifty percent of the travel costs for participating students. This educational journey will delve into the historical significance of the Korean War, providing insights into the country, its rich heritage, culture, and its increasing role in Georgia’s and the U.S.’s economy.

Dr. David Kieran, the Col. Richard R. Hallock Distinguished University Chair in Military History at Columbus State University, expressed gratitude for Hyundai Motor Group’s backing, emphasizing its pivotal role in fostering a deeper understanding of the Korean War’s legacy and the enduring ties between the Republic of Korea and the United States since the armistice 70 years ago. The sponsorship also ensures greater affordability for students keen on exploring the dynamics of one of the world’s major economic players.

In preparation for the trip, students at CSU have organized a series of panel discussions focusing on the Korean War’s legacy and the post-war relations between the Republic of Korea and the U.S. The culminating panel discussion is scheduled to take place at the Cunningham Conference Center at 7 p.m.
