Equipping high school students with scholarships to support them in their pursuit of higher education.

Many of our country’s future leaders will have the D.K. Kim Foundation to thank for the opportunity to pursue their career ambitions. — Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club

Since 2009, The D.K. Kim Foundation has supported the Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club in their mission to provide financial aid to students. Recipients of the D.K. Kim Scholarship are chosen based on their demonstrated history of academic achievement, community service, teacher recommendations, and financial need, which carries a weight double the other factors when evaluating applicants.

In 2019, the recipients of the D.K. Kim Scholarship were awarded funding to attend among the country’s finest universities.

The 2019 recipients are:

    • Robert Peltekov, attending University of California, Berkeley
    • Katlyn Karambelas, attending El Camino College
    • Noelle Gordillo, attending Emerson College [Boston, MA])
    • Sara Atashi, attending University of Southern California
    • Minami Yamaura, attending University of California, Berkeley

The D.K. Kim Foundation applauds these students for their dedication to education, service to others, and their commitment to doing their best in all things. Good Luck!
