Korean American Scholarship

The Korean American Scholarship Foundation (KASF) is a non-profit, volunteer-managed organization established to help meet the financial needs of Korean-American students seeking higher education. Specifically, the foundation seeks to: Assist Korean American students in pursuit of academic and personal achievement, encourage community and civic service as an integral part of leadership development, and nurture the sense of pride and confidence in Korean cultural heritage and tradition.

In addition, pending funds availability, KASF has also provided scholarships to qualified descendants of Korean War American Veterans.

The foundation is operated by its voluntary-based Board of Directors and supporters and its operating expenses are funded by incomes from membership dues and local fund raising activities. In addition to their voluntary work for the KASF, many of our Board of Directors are also scholarship donors.
