Grant Policy

It is the policy of the Ryu Family Foundation that its scholarship grant is the fund designated to meet part or all of the expenses that a student is required to defray to his/her college/university. No personal expense, while it is very essential, will be given as its scholarship grant.

For these reasons, the RFF Foundation’s grant check will always be issued to the joint order of both the grant recipient and his/her college/university. Once you have been selected as scholarship recipient, a proof of attendance from the school as listed in the application form is required for you to receive the scholarship fund. Please submit the proof of attendance as soon as it is available from the school in order to receive it early.
