LPGA's Rolex Player of the Year Park In-bee will become a student at the Graduate School of International Service of Sookmyung Women's University.

The university on Thursday said Park was admitted to study international PR and sports and public diplomacy from the first semester next year.

Park earned a full scholarship for all five semesters in recognition of her achievement as an athlete.

She will meet her supervisor and have one-on-one tutorials once every two months to continue her studies as well as her professional golf career.

"It was my dream to use my ability in sports and public diplomacy, and I'm happy and honored to be able to study this field academically," she said.
