In 1982, Youngnak Presbyterian Church of Los Angeles 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 by recognizing those students who exemplify the servitude-leadership qualities of our Lord Jesus Christ and those who are committed to spreading HIS word in meaningful and relevant ways to society as a whole.  Individuals who excel academically and demonstrate leadership qualities and 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 academic year 2017-2018. We anticipate the average individual award will be at least $1,000.

The Youngnak Scholarship program will be accepting applications for the following six categories:

  1. Rev. Ke Yong Kim Memorial Scholarship (2 awards at $5,000 each)
  2. Anna Mission Group Scholarship (2 awards at $3,000 each)
  3. Seminary Scholarship ($2,000 each)
  4. CYL Scholarship: Students with Single Parent
  5. General Academic Scholarship
  6. Pastor's Kid Scholarship

Please refer to the specific eligibility requirements for each scholarship. If you are applying for the scholarship based on financial needs, it is very important that your financial needs are completely and accurately documented as the application requires.

The final number and amount of each scholarship award will be determined by the Youngnak Scholarship Selection Committee. A list of recipients will be posted on our website and on our Facebook page in July of 2017. Please note that prior to the distribution of scholarship funds, it is the responsibility of the recipients to submit additional required documentations. All recipients will be asked to attend our annual Youngnak Scholarship banquet in August and will be required to write a thank you letter to the donor(s) of the scholarship.

The deadline for RECEIPT of official transcripts or supporting documents in our office is April 21, 2017. Only a sealed, original transcript will be accepted. Because of the high volume of applications received, you are strongly encouraged to apply well before the published deadline. Only candidates who have completed their online application by the deadline will be reviewed. Please forward your official transcripts and submit your online application as early as possible

We wish you the best and look forward to reviewing your application. Should you have any questions on the Youngnak Scholarship Program, please post your questions on our Facebook page or send to

In Christ and His Grace,
