Twenty-One Students Selected for Center for Korean Studies Scholarships

CKS logoThe Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies is pro­vid­ing $55,000 in schol­ar­ships for twen­ty-one stu­dents in Korea-relat­ed stud­ies at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hawai‘i at Mānoa for the 2017‒2018 aca­d­e­m­ic year. This year’s finan­cial sup­port includes the first awards of two recent­ly estab­lished schol­ar­ships: the Kook Min Hur schol­ar­ship and the Doin and Hee Kyung Lee Kwon Scholarship.

The Kook Min Hur schol­ar­ship was cre­at­ed by the Kore­an Nation­al Asso­ci­a­tion (Kung­min­hoe or Kook Min Hur) in mem­o­ry of the sac­ri­fices made by the many patri­ots of the orga­ni­za­tion. The KNA was estab­lished in Hawai‘i in 1909 for the pur­pose of unit­ing all Kore­ans in the Unit­ed States in the com­mon cause of lib­er­at­ing Korea from Japan­ese occupation.

The Do In Kwon and Hee Kyung Lee Kwon schol­ar­ship was estab­lished to hon­or the mem­o­ry of the Kwons, two out­stand­ing civic lead­ers among the ear­ly Kore­an com­mu­ni­ty in Hawai‘i.

Descrip­tions of all the schol­ar­ships admin­is­tered by the Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies and instruc­tions for apply­ing for them can be found on the Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies Web site.
