KOREAN Scholastic Excellence Fund 

The Chun Korean Scholastic Excellence Fund was established with the goal each year to recognize the best research efforts by Korean graduate students at UF Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering with a scholarship award. This is the only award that focuses specifically on the achievements of Korean graduate students, and it has been made possible by the generous contributions of the University of Florida alumni, matching funds from the New York Times and the donations of some friends in Korea.


All applicants must have at least four publications in reputable journals and be senior author on at least two. All papers must be related to research work done while pursuing a PhD degree at the University of Florida.

Applicants should include the following items in one single PDF:

  • Cover letter along with a brief summary of your research work
  • Letter of recommendation from your research advisor
  • A curriculum vitae 

Please use this form to apply for the HWCOE Korean Scholastic Excellence Fund. Previous award recipients are not eligible to apply. The deadline for submission is Dec 1, 2021 at 5 pm.
