Samsung American Legion Scholarship


Worldwide electronics leader Samsung endowed a scholarship fund of $5 million to be administered by The American Legion in 1996. Meant to show appreciation for U.S. veterans who came to Korea's aid during its struggle against communist forces in the Korean War, the Samsung American Legion Scholarship Program established a series of scholarships derived from interest and other income from the principal amount. 


Beginning in 2016, the entire application process will be done online. More information will be posted as it comes in. Check back often to see any updates.
