KASWEA - Fundraising 2018

Dear Members of Korean American Social Work Educators Association (KASWEA)


Re: Donation for Scholarship


Purpose: To support Korean doctoral students who are studying in the US and Canada to successfully graduate and achieve their goals.


We are Younsook Yeo (St. Cloud State University), Intae Yoon (North Carolina State University), Jaegoo Lee (Jackson State University), Yi Jin Kim (University of Mississippi), and Youn Kyoung Kim (Louisiana State University), the members of the Scholarship Fundraising Committee of KASWEA.
It is proud to know that so many Korean scholars are working for the mission of social work as professors, researchers, and Ph.D. students in United States and Canada. We have more than a hundred professors/researchers and two hundred doctoral students. Such a surprising growth could not have happened without our senior Korean American educators’ endless dedication to our community and care for our new members.
It is not too much to emphasize to our doctoral students to attend national conferences for professional developments and job interviews. However, many students cannot afford to attend those conferences, which may hinder them from getting on the career path. Out of the efforts to relieve their financial burden from traveling to conferences, we have raised funds since 2013. As a result, every year some selective doctoral students were able to attend conferences thanks to the members who voluntarily participated in the fundraising activities. We should uphold such a noble tradition that our senior members have made, and it is the time for us to give our collective efforts to our junior members. Please consider your kind contribution to this effort so that our future social work educators can achieve their goals. We are humbly asking for your kind donations. Thank you.
