The KASF offers scholarships to full-time students with financial need and GPAs of 3.0 or higher. Koreans (international students) and Korean-Americans may apply. The KASF has divided the US into 6 districts. Application requirements depend upon in which district your university is located. General requirements include a lengthy application form, an official transcript, two letters of recommendation, a recent photo and a one-page essay. Some districts require the FAFSA or copies of parents’ tax returns.
