Nurturing Students to Achieve Their Full Potential
Welcome to the Korean Canadian Scholarship Foundation (KCSF) – an organization dedicated to helping students achieve their dreams. Founded in 1978 by the pioneering 1st generation of Korean-Canadians, the organization has continuously evolved to help students soar and achieve their potential.
Vision: Growing the dream trees of tomorrow.
The concept of “dream trees” is unique to our Korean heritage. Generations before us have traditionally held dreams, hopes and aspirations for the next generation. Our youth represent promising dream trees nurtured by the prior generation to cultivate their talent and fulfill their potential for growth. As our youth reach their full potential, the dreams of the generation before are fulfilled, and those dream trees blossom and plant seeds for future generations. The VKCSF was founded on this principle by the founding members in 1978.
The mission of the VKCSF is to nurture students to achieve their full potential and to provide opportunities for KoreanCanadian students to create their unique paths to success. The VKCSF seeks to develop a new generation of leaders who will continue with the values of the VKCSF and nurture new dream trees. The VKCSF accomplishes this primarily through its scholarship and student development programs.
The VKCSFstarted out offering scholarships to post-secondary students. That foundation still exists. Today, we have expanded our service to the community via bursaries and pro-active programs via the Student Development Committee and Steering Committee.
