What is the Samsung Scholarship ?

The Samsung American Legion Scholarship has been given out since 1996 and is made possible by a gift from Samsung, a global leader in electronics.  The fund was a way to thank the American soldiers who helped Korea during the Korean War.  Because of interest and other income from the fund’s capital, more than 2,069 people have been given scholarships worth more than $5.5 million so far.


The Samsung American Legion Scholarship pays for first-year college and can be used for room and board, tuition, books, and fees.  Winners are chosen every year based on a scoring system that looks at things like grades, extracurricular activities, and community work.  The following numbers are given out every year:

  1. There are ten National Scholars, and two from each area will each get $10,000.
  2. Ten runner-ups across the country each get $5,000, with two winners from each area.
  3. The remaining department finalists will each get $1,250.
