Established by Dr. William Orr Dingwall with the purpose of supporting immigrant students in their pursuit of undergraduate degrees in a variety of fields. The Korean Ancestry Grants are awarded to students of Korean ancestry (and a limited number of exceptional students of other Asian ancestry) pursuing undergraduate degrees at accredited universities in the United States.
As of August 2016, the information for the 2017-2018 academic year grants has not been released yet. For the 2016-2017 academic year, at least seven new Korean Ancestry Grants, with a maximum grant of $10,000 were available.
- Applicants must be of Asian ancestry, with at least one Asian grandparent. There is a strong preference for applicants of Korean ancestry.
- The minimum GPA to apply is 3.50.
- The grant is for undergraduate study only.
Applications for the 2017-18 academic year will be accepted in the early months of 2017. (For example, in 2016, applications were due by March 31, 2016.) Follow this link for more detail on the grants and to find the application link.
