On Feb. 25, Doosan Yonkang Foundation (Chairman Yong Hyun Park) held the 2016 Doosan Yonkang Foundation Scholarship Awards Ceremony in Ramada Seoul Dongdaemun, presenting 1.25 billion won (or $1.01 million) in scholarships to more than 390 students in elementary school, middle school, high school, and university.
The scholarships for elementary and middle school students are for young people who effectively have to serve as the heads of their households. The awards for high school and college students go to those recommended by their school principals for their high academic attainments. Among the scholarship recipients, 66 college students will engaged in the Doosan Yonkang Scholarship mentoring program, a talent-sharing program established in 2013 to support the educationally alienated class. As mentors, they will help elementary, middle and high school students with school work at Group Home, a childcare center, and a local children’s center.
“Through the Doosan Yonkang Foundation scholarship program, we hope to make a positive impact on the students to grow up to become invaluable members of society,” Chairman Park said.
Doosan Yonkang Foundation is the Doosan Group’s scholarship and academic foundation, and has supported scholarship, academic and cultural programs since its establishment in 1978.
