Continuous Donation for So-Am Poong-eon Jo Scholarship... Accumulated Donations of over 1 billion Won
 
Donation from alumni is continuing steadily for Korea University Business School (Dean=Soo Young Kwon). KUBS currently runs a variety of scholarship programs of its own, and for this purpose, alumni are providing huge support. 

The So-Am Scholarship is also a scholarship raised as a result of the alumni's great love toward Korea University. The So-Am Scholarship was organized by Poong-eon Jo (Commerce’59) to encourage young students in difficult circumstances to continue their studies. Poong-eon Jo started making donations in 2005 to return the help he received from Korea University during his hard times. The scholarship has been carried on by his wife, vice chairman Cho Duk-hee since Mr. Jo passed away in 2014.
