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 has established ‘Unified University Student Dormitory’ which is students 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.
