Financial partners and donors have an important
role in the student aid programs administered by KOSAF. Financial gifts help to
extend opportunities that allow students with limited financial means or with
academic excellence who aspire to realize their dreams.
THE IMPACT OF DONATIONS
Student Residential Complex
Due to high cost of housing and
severe shortage of dormitories in Seoul and major cities, many university students are
forced to share one small room or live in flophouses. Addressing the severe housing shortage
among college students, KOSAF is currently building one student residential complex near Seoul.
The construction has been made possible by the donations from several commercial banks in Korea.
KOSAF is planning to solicit more donations to build several more residentail complexes.
Blue Lighthouse Scholarship Fund
Consisting of donations from individuals and businesses, the
fund helps students with financial difficulty by providing financial aid to pay for
tuitions and/or living costs. Donations are 100% tax-deductable for individuals and 50% tax-deductable

Mentorship Programs As a part of Blue
