The KASF seeks 1) to assist Korean American students in pursuit of academic and personal achievement, 2) to encourage community and civic service as an integral part of leadership development, and 3) to nurture the sense of pride and confidence in Korean cultural heritage and tradition.

KASF is organized into seven regions and the scholarship application process is handled separately by each region. Please select the state where the school you will be attending during the scholarship year is located for the proper instructions on submitting your application. Grants vary from $500-$5,000 depending on the allocations from local chapters.


  • Undergraduate, graduate, and high school students enrolled full time during the scholarship application year.
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  • Can demonstrate need for financial assistance.
  • Students with a Korean heritage studying in the United States regardless of citizenship status (including Korean Nationals). If extra funds are available, other students (non-Korean) may qualify for some scholarships.
