■ The 8th HUFS Staff Scholarship (“Seed Scholarship”) Award Ceremony Held
The 8th HUFS Staff Scholarship (“Seed Scholarship”) award ceremony was held at the Seoul Campus Main Building Room 402 on February 20.
In the same manner as previous ones, four HUFS students (two from the Seoul Campus and two from the Global Campus) each received scholarships of two million won. Serving their original purpose as tuition scholarships, the Seed Scholarships are granted to those with excellence in academic performance and in volunteering and other activities on and off campus.
HUFS staff participating in the ceremony said they will work on expanding the scholarship for more students, and asked for further support and encouragement.
Established in 2015 by HUFS administrative staff to help students pursue their studies and dreams, the Seed Scholarship Program has grown in size and now awards scholarship to four HUFS students from the Seoul Campus and Global Campus each semester.
