About Scholarship

Scholarship for High School Students and Undergraduate Students: Since 1984, the scholarship program has supported local Chicago area students who were interested in studying in the science and engineering field for their careers. The 12th chapter president 박만희 initiated the program, and it has been supported by many members of the chapter. There are scholarship committee members to review and select the awardees. Currently, over 250 students have received this scholarship and they have come back to the KSEA Chicagoland chapter to support.
