Awards website:


Students of Korean heritage studying in the United States regardless of citizenship status (including Korean Nationals). If extra funds are available, other students (non-Korean) may qualify for some scholarships; specifically, descendants of American veterans served during the Korean War may qualify for scholarships (applicable to selective regions).  Applicants must be undergraduate, graduate, or high school students enrolled full time during the scholarship application year who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Consult regional guidelines (for the region where the applicant will attend school) for further details.
