Grant Policy

It is the policy of the Ryu Family Foundation that our scholarship grant is granted to be used for the tuition and fees that a student owes to his/her college/university. The scholarship grant is not to be used to cover a student's personal expenses. For these reasons, the RFF Foundation’s grant check will  be issued to the joint order of both the grant recipient and his/her college/university.

The decision of the Foundation on the grant is final and not subject to any appeal or reconsideration.
