Korean Scholarship Trust


Korean Scholarship Trust (KST) is a non-profit charitable organisation registered with the Charities Commission.

Our main aim is to encourage Korean students studying in the Canterbury region to:

  • excel in various fields such as academics, sports, performing arts, etc;
  • maintain connections within the Korean community and make contribution where possible;
  • become effective leaders in New Zealand.

KST deed of trust and the certificate of incorporation are publicly available for download.


Currently KST offers 'Canterbury Scholarship' to high school graduates, which is currently the only form of scholarship provided by KST.

Canterbury Scholarship is actually a continuation of Jin's Auto Scholarship.


Our only source of funding is donations given by generous individuals and other sponsoring organisations. If you would like to join us in our good cause, please contact us.
