Over 60 years ago, the founding pastor of Yuong Sang Presbyterian Church (YSPC), Rev. Yong Kol Yi, was only able to complete his education through the financial support of an anonymous donor. Through this anonymous donor, and many others who supported him during his childhood and seminarian years, Rev. Yi has been able to share the love of Christ with tens of thousands of people. The Yuong Sang Scholarship Foundation was established in 2016 when YSPC allocated $470,000 in honor of Rev. Yi, who requested that the funds be used to support the children of pastors and missionaries in the form of a scholarship. Additional generous donations were made to grow the total scholarship fund to $500,000.
1) To support those who are pursuing their Masters of Divinity degree program, to better prepare them as future leaders of the church and in world missions

3) To support pastors and missionary kids (PKs & MKs) as they pursue their graduate degrees with the intent to become missionaries

First, the fund will support theological students studying in accredited schools in United States. We desire to encourage candidates pursuing theological studies. We will also support children of pastors and missionaries (PKs & MKs) with potential to become valuable asset in God’s Kingdom. It is our desire to continue developing missions and pastoral leaders.
Second, the open scholarship will be made available to both families and friends of the church with financial challenges. This category is open to the community at large, and is available to college and graduate students who are visionaries with firm faith in God.
All recipients of the scholarship will be selected with very specific guidelines set by the committee. The scholarship fund will be used in development of next generation, Korean-Americans leaders and beyond.
