Premier advising, support, and resources to apply to the nation’s best colleges and graduate schools:
1. One-on-One Mentoring
We assign each applicant a peer mentor from America’s leading colleges and universities to navigate the entire application process: finding schools and programs, writing essays, preparing for interviews, and obtaining financial aid.
2. Standardized Testing Preparation
Each applicant will complete a comprehensive standardized test (SAT/ACT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE, etc.) preparation course, either online or in-person, from curated test prep companies.
3. Advocacy and Outreach
We aim to inform admissions processes to increase higher education access for North Korean defectors, who possess distinct insights, ideas, and views as individuals who have lived in both authoritarian and liberal states.
We believe that North Korean defectors can lead the global effort to reunify the Korean peninsula. To prepare, Bluebird NK will ensure every defector in America can access higher education to become innovators, leaders, and scholars.
