Gov't to Increase Spending for Disabled College Students Four-Fold

The government plans to significantly raise financial rewards for those assisting disabled college students, helping them to study more easily.  

The move, jointly announced on Monday by the Education Ministry and Korea National University of Welfare, will offer a fourfold increase to monthly allowances given to such helpers, or doumi in Korean. 

Fellow college students or other adults can apply for the so-called doumi program, in which they help physically or mentally challenged college students with commuting and studying in return for a monthly wage. 

Until last year, each doumi received 330-thousand won per month but that rate will rise to one-point-28 million won beginning in the 2018 academic year.

A total of 763 people assisted 905 disabled students last year at 116 colleges across the country.
