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. Final determination is reached by a committee made up of the KLI Director and a changing selection of qualified language specialists. Formal announcement of each year's recipient is made at the annual conference of the KLI, the qep'a'.

All nominees must be full-time students at the time of the award and in a program leading to a degree in a field of language study. Nominees must show evidence of academic accomplishment and enjoy the high regard and respect of their supervising faculty.

- Two additional letters of recommendation from departmental faculty
- A brief statement from the nominee regarding his/her goals and purpose with respect to the selected course of study
