Thank you for your interest in the Scholarship Program at Youngnak Presbyterian Church of Los Angeles (“Youngnak Church”). In 1982, Youngnak Church established the Scholarship Program to recognize and promote Christian leadership and academic achievements among Korean-American Christian students. The main purpose of this Scholarship Program is to provide support to students who exemplify the servitude-leadership qualities of our Lord Jesus Christ and those who are committed to spreading HIS word in a meaningful way.

Individuals who excel academically and demonstrate leadership qualities who are seeking to further their undergraduate, graduate, or theological education will be considered for financial support. We are pleased to announce that we will be awarding up to $150,000 to selected students for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year and anticipate the average individual award to be around $1,000.

Other than a mailed official transcript, all materials should be submitted online. The deadline for RECEIPT of official transcripts and supporting documents is April 20, 2018. Only a sealed, original transcript will be accepted. Due to the high volume of applications received, applicants are strongly encouraged to apply well before the published deadline. Only applicants who have completed their online application by the deadline will be reviewed. We wish you the best and look forward to reviewing your application.

Should you have any questions, please post your questions on our Facebook page or to scholarship@youngnak.com. In Christ and His Grace.
