Representatives from the Korean Society of Dallas(KSD) met with officials from the Carrollton Police and Fire Department Tuesday, May 1st to discuss this year’s KSD Scholarship Award and Police/Firefighter Appreciation Luncheon.


This year marks the third year in which the KSD is awarding scholarships to children of police officers and firefighters of Carrollton.


The KSD started this program three years ago to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice that the police officers and firefighters provide.


The first event was held in June of 2016, with five high school students receiving $1,000 scholarship each.


The number of recipients grew to eight during the second annual event in June of 2017.


This program not only helps the future leaders of Carrollton with their higher education needs, but also provides an opportunity for Korean-American community leaders and Carrollton city officials to maintain healthy working relationship.


During the last decade or so, the size and influence of the Korean-American business community in Carrollton have grown significantly. And the need for community relations from both sides is greater than ever before.


“Dallas Korean American community has given scholarships to the sons and daughters of the Carrollton police officers and firefighters who protect us. And through the process, we became trusted friends, too” said KSD vice president Brian Park.

Carrollton Police and Fire Department will conduct its own selection of scholarship candidates and recommend them to KSD.


KSD will announce more details about the event as the preparation unfolds. For sponsorship opportunities and more information, contact KSD at 972-241-4524 or
