Under its motto of “Love is Power” the campus organization Club Donghanghandae is a group that consists of a number of patrons who have financially assisted the universities to produce generations of well-trained human resources for the nation and global community. Anyone who has love for HYU, and has the financial ability to donate to the university on a monthly basis, can register to become a member of this club. This program first originated as a crowd funding project called ̔Ship-si Il Ban’. It only changed its name from ̔Ship-si Il Ban’ at the beginning of this year. The club plans to officially provide plans for scholarships to HYU students starting in 2017.
The money collected will be specifically spent on providing financial aid to students in need. The financial support will cover their living expenses as well as tuition. Another part of the money will be spent on supporting student administrated clubs, volunteer activities and cultural programs which will ultimately help students find a job once they graduate. The remaining amount will be invested in a program that offers opportunities for HYU students to participate in global internships.
The exact criteria by which students will be selected for these scholarships and the amount of money necessary to officially start this program are under discussion at the moment. In order to speed things along, HYU students who are at least remotely interested in the future HYU human resource development, should consider being a part of this benevolent program.
