We regret to announce that we will not be accepting any new scholarship applications this year.
We received 148 applications last year and expect more than 200 this year. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to thoughtfully review this many applications and also believe it is not fair for the applicants to expend so much effort for a less than 10% chance to receive a scholarship.
While we are searching for alternative ways to meet our objectives, we have decided this year to support two organizations: Kollaboration and the Korean Cultural Center of Chicago.
Kollaboration is a movement of Asian American young artists with the mission of “Empowerment through Entertainment”. Chicago will be hosting its annual event on July 7th, 2012 at North Shore Center of Performing Arts. Details of Kollaboration and its event can be found on its website www.kollaborationchicago.org.
The Next Generation Board of the Korean Cultural Center will be hosting a 2012 Scholarship Competition to promote cultural diversity and support young students. This year’s competition will focus on “the Art of Storytelling”. The event will take place on August 4, 2012 at the Korean Cultural
Center and details can be found on its website: www.kccoc.org/home/eng_kccoc_events/3059
