The Kor Memorial Scholarship

The purpose of the Kor Memorial Scholarship is to recognize and encourage scholarship in fields of language study. Familiarity with Klingon or other constructed languages is not required, however creative and innovative applicants are preferred.


A $500 award will be bestowed upon an undergraduate or graduate student each year.
