Scholarship Purpose: Wonsook Kim came to Illinois State University from Korea in 1972 to study art. Like the rich cornfields nurturing the crops around her, the campus and thoughtful teachers provided a fertile place for her to grow. As a graduate student in 1975, she received the Elizabeth Stein Scholarship Award which provided reassurance that she could pursue her dream to be an artist and her creative voice could be heard if she worked hard. Wonsook Kim is now a very successful artist and is represented by galleries throughout the entire world. The Wonsook Kim Art Scholarship at Illinois State University was created as a way to pay back, in part, what she received so abundantly when she first began her own journey as an artist. The scholarship is awarded to an art major who has been accepted for enrollment or enrolled in good standing at Illinois State University. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need.NOMAJOR NOLEVEL
