As the new semester begins, professors have awarded scholarships to students.

On Thursday, March 14th, at 5 PM, the Seokrim Foundation, a scholarship foundation consisting of Korea University professors, held the Spring Semester 2024 Seokrim Foundation Scholarship Certificate Award Ceremony in the International Video Conference Room in the Centennial Memorial Samsung Hall of Korea University.

At the ceremony, 57 students were selected as scholarship recipients, and approximately 1.2 billion won in scholarships was awarded.

The Seokrim Foundation, founded in 1970 by professors with the purpose of nurturing future generations, now has approximately 900 professors as its members. It is the largest scholarship foundation established within Korea University. Annually, about 100 students on average are granted scholarships ranging from 2 to 5 million won per person.

장To select scholarship recipients, professors from the steering committees of each college, deans of colleges, and the Academic Affairs Department hold a meeting to screen scholarship applications. Those who overcome challenging circumstances and show outstanding performance in their studies and exemplary conduct towards others are selected as scholarship winners.

Lee Won-gyu, the Provost & Executive Vice President, remarked, "Korea University has always fostered strong bonds between professors and students, seniors and juniors." He added, "Even after graduation, our alumni always miss Korea University as home in their hearts and actively engage in supporting their juniors.” He concluded his congratulatory speech, saying, "I hope you will not forget the meanings of wanting our students to develop into highly talented individuals and the love for juniors, and I hope you will spend this semester fruitfully."

Next, Choi Seok-moo, chairman of the Seokrim Foundation, began his speech, saying, "You have been selected as scholarship recipients as a result of your tireless efforts to achieve." Quoting 17th-century English poet John Donne's poem ‘No Man is an Island,’ he underlined that each individual is a part of the community of common destiny for mankind. He said "When you go out into society and succeed, please remember that we are all connected by donating scholarships to our students," offering words of encouragement.

Choi Ha-min (Class of 2022, College of Nursing) said, "Receiving the Seokrim Foundation scholarship is a valuable experience and a meaningful occasion," and she continued, "I will work harder not to let down the expectations of the professors."
