Scholarship Description

In memory of the late Grandmaster Moo Yong Lee, US Cup Tae Kwon Do is offering two $1,000 college scholarships for students who also practice Tae Kwon Do. This scholarship honors the life and legacy of Grandmaster Moo Yong Lee, 10th Dan, who passed away in December 2016. Grandmaster Lee dedicated his life to promote the study and practice of Tae Kwon Do in the United States. He has trained countless students, black belts, masters, and grandmasters. In recognition of his efforts and achievements, Grandmaster Lee was entered into the Tae Kwon Do Hall of Fame. “Mr. Lee” was also passionate about education, and devoted additional charitable efforts towards academic scholarships.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must currently be participating in a belt promoting program at a dedicated Tae Kwon Do school and will be enrolled in a degree-granting nonprofit accredited college or university during the upcoming academic year. Students living in the greater New England region and who can demonstrate financial need are preferred. Two award recipients will be selected based on academic performance, achievement in Tae Kwon Do, and personal character. Personal character will be judged from extracurricular activities, community service, application responses, and letters of recommendation. Award winners will be notified by phone and/or email. Funds will be sent directly to the college or university of matriculation. Scholarships are non-renewing.
