The Moon-Joo Scholarship Foundation
awards full scholarships. Rather than
supporting multiple people with partial
scholarships, it hopes to support a single
student with a full scholarship.
This was inspired by Chairman Moon’s own story.
When he was a young student, Chairman Moonwas
able to direct his full attention towards
completing his studies thanks to a full
scholarship offer that covered his tuitions
from his Junior year in college until his
The highest priority in screening
scholarship applications is given to the applicant
and his/her family’s income level
rather than his/her academic grades.
In fact, the Foundation does not consider academic
performance at all. It evaluates each applicant
based on their financial background, and extends
support to those facing difficulties in securing
the necessary tuition funds. This is because
the Moon-Joo Scholarship Foundation believes that
even students in financial distress should be given
equal opportunities to complete their education.
Once an applicant receives the scholarship, however,
he/she must maintain their academic grades.
This is to ensure the Foundation supports those who
sincerely make an effort to better their futures.
