The scholarships were awarded to disadvantaged students who demonstrated outstanding academic performance. Among the scholarship recipients, 81 college students will participate as mentors in the Doosan Yonkang Scholarship mentoring program, established in 2013, to support students from educationally alienated backgrounds at children’s welfare facilities.
“Through the Doosan Yonkang Foundation scholarship program, we hope to make a positive impact on the students and help them grow up to become invaluable members of society,” Chairman Park said.
Since its establishment in 1978, Doosan Yonkang Foundation has offered scholarships to underprivileged students who have shown excellent academic performance. So far, more than 6,000 high school and university students have benefited from the scholarship program.
