Won-Joon Yoon Memorial Scholarship


See the scholarship opportunity below!

Won-Joon Yoon Memorial Scholarship

On Sunday, 4 July 1999, a bright and promising young Korean graduate student was killed as he was entering his church. He was the victim of a random act of extremist violence. Indiana University is united in deploring the hatred and intolerance that caused this senseless tragedy and is committed to the principles and ideals that make this university a place where people from all walks of life and from all nations and religions, can join together in pursuit of knowledge and mutual respect. As a way of underscoring Mr. Yoon’s legacy, Indiana University established this scholarship.

The Won-Joon Yoon Scholarship will provide financial support for IU students who have exemplified tolerance and understanding across racial and religious lines through service, personal commitment, academic achievement and future potential.

Candidates may be graduate students or undergraduates who have completed at least one academic semester of study at Indiana University at the time of application. Candidates may be citizens of any country.

Candidates must be full-time students pursuing Indiana University degrees.

Candidates may be self-nominated (apply themselves) or be nominated by Indiana University faculty or staff members.

Candidates must submit a statement (not to exceed 750 words) describing what the scholarship will enable them to accomplish in their academic programs. The scholarship should be taken up during summer 2008 or the 2008-2009 academic year.

Candidates must submit a resume or curriculum vitae.

Three letters of support are required, at least one of which should be from an Indiana University faculty member.

Faculty or staff who nominate candidates, please provide a letter of nomination and at least one additional letter of support. If possible, please also enclose a copy of the student’s resume or curriculum vitae.

The scholarship has a value of approximately $2,500.
