Letter from the Bank of America Dean, UC Berkeley, Haas School of Business, 2011

Your support makes it possible for the best and brightest international students to take advantage of our world-class MBA program. You are such a champion of this effort and I cannot thank you enough for the opportunities it makes possible for both our students and school.

Letter from the Chancellor, UC Berkeley, 2008

It is with great pleasure that I write to thank The D.K. Kim Foundation, Inc. for its gift to the University of California, Berkeley in contribution to the D.K. Kim Grant Scholarship.

The support of The D.K. Kim Foundation, Inc. allows for increased opportunities for prospective and current students to thrive in our University’s Haas School of Business. It is both kind and admirable that you have made a concerted effort in pushing our students’ pursuit of a better future for themselves irrespective of what financial circumstances they may have. Once again, thank you for your gift.

Letter from the Former Bank of America Dean, UC Berkeley, 2008

It gives me great pleasure to again thank you for your continuing, generous support helping international students pursue their MBA degrees at the Haas School of Business with assistance from the D. K. Kim Grant Scholarship revolving loan fund. Your gift has greatly helped and will continue to help so many students take advantage of our outstanding master’s program. This is a wonderful thing. The presence of students from all over the world deepens all of our students’ experiences over the two years of their education.

Letter to Mr. Kim from the Chancellor, UC Berkeley 2005

Your contribution to the D. K. Kim Foundation Revolving Grant Program through your foundation is both thoughtful and generous. As Yuan T. Lee, one of our distinguished Nobel laureates in chemistry, once stated, “I came to Berkeley as a graduate student to work with the world’s greatest faculty. I came back to Berkeley as a professor to work with the world’s greatest graduate students.” Your support for our bright and talented M.B.A. students is therefore a critical investment in Berkeley and its future.

Robert Birgeneau, Chancellor, Professor of Physics, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
