The Korean Honor Scholarship

 

            The Korean Honor Scholarship Committee extends an invitation to Korean and Korean-American undergraduate and graduate students to compete for the 2016 Korean Honor Scholarship.

          This Scholarship was first established in 1981 with a gift of US $1 million dollars donated by the government of the Republic of Korea to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the opening of diplomatic relations between Korea and the United States.  Over the next several years, an additional US$1.75 million was added to the fund by the Korean Government and now the fund totals $2.90 million.  This scholarship is awarded to outstanding students of Korean heritage to encourage high achievement of   academic performance and the development of leadership qualities for their future professional careers.

         The Korean Honor Scholarship Committee has awarded 3,043 scholarships to outstanding Korean and Korean-American students over the past 36 years.  To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be attending college or university in the United States and must have an overall grade point average of 3.5 or higher. In addition to academic achievement, the Scholarship Committee also considers an essay, a letter of recommendation, awards, honors, performances and extracurricular activities when making selections.  Approximately 35 scholarships will be awarded this year.
