2016 Jaisohn Foundation Scholarship Winners announcement

2016년도 (18) 서재필 재단 장학생  선발과 시상식

본 서재필 기념재단은 올해 (2016년)도 서재필재단 장학금 수혜 대상자를 선발하여 소정의 장학금을 지급하게 된 것을 대단히 기쁘게 생각합니다.

Helen Lee  장학금, 현봉학 기념 장학금, Jane Song 기념장학금, 서재필재단 장학금, 정학량 리더쉽 장학금, 서태원Journalism 장학금, 전희준 사회봉사 장학금, 그리고 올해 새로 시작하는 권정희 희망장학금 등8부문에 11명이 수상자로 선정되었고, 6명이 장려장학생 (Honorable mention)으로 선정되었습니다.

1999년에 헬렌리 장학금으로 부터 시작한 서재필 장학금은 올해로 18년째를 맡습니다.  그동안  많은 학생들 (올해 수상자 포함하여 총 183명)이 서재필장학금 혜택을 받았습니다. 올해도 전국적으로 모두 22명의 대학 및 대학원생들이 지원하였는데 특히 각자의 꿈과 포부, 그리고 여러가지 현재 처한, 그리고 넘어야 할 어려운 난관 들을 솔직히 표현한 essay 와 personal statement 를 읽고 많이 공감하였습니다. 

130년전 도미하여 수많은 역경들을 극복하고, 학업을 쌓으며, 조국의 독립과 민주주의, 미국과 지역사회의 발전에도 건전한 시민정신으로 많은 공헌을 한 서재필박사가 Korean-American으로서 서재필재단 장학금 응모자들에게 훌륭한 role model이 됨을 증언하고 있어서 매우 감명을 받았습니다.   

다음의 각 부문별 수상자 11명에 대한 시상식이 장학금 수상자, 부모님, 재단관계자와 내빈 여러분이 참석하여10월 8일 서재필재단에서 개최되었습니다.
