Each student in the scholarship program receives about $500 a month (exactly 500,000won). One full scholarship for a student is $6,000. Donate here if you would like to sponsor one student for 2017. You will be provided with updates about your student during the year and if you visit Korea you can meet the student. Groups are also welcome to sponsor one student (10 people giving $50 a month, for example). Please e-mail us at otpkorea@gmail.com if you have a group desiring to sponsor a student.

About This Project

On Saturday, October 15, 2016, Oak Tree Project will be partnering with a race for underprivileged children in Korea to raise funds for scholarships for orphans in South Korea. Orphans in Korea are on their own after they graduate from high school and many struggle to get by financially and emotionally. It is especially difficult for those who get into college who have to work while studying. The stress and loneliness leads to depression and desperation for many, which can lead to prostitution, joining gangs, or even suicide. Oak Tree Project is a scholarship and mentoring program designed to not just help the orphans have funds through college, but to also receive the emotional support and guidance they need to succeed. To find out more about the Oak Tree Project, please visit www.oaktreeproject.com.
