We're proud to announce the winners of the Spring/Summer 2017 iteration of the 99 Dreams Scholarship fund. We received so many awesome ideas, we couldn't limit ourselves to picking just one winner. So we decided to increase the prize pool and split it between our two winners! See below for more information about their projects. And if you didn't win this time, don't worry. We'll be running the scholarship again later this year. Keep an eye on your email and we'll let you know when applications are open again. But for now, the winners for summer 2017.
Check back for more information about our winners and when we'll be launching the project again.
The Cate School
Currently, many school children in Africa are unable to effectively focus on their studies due to a lack of proper school supplies. Juan aims to fix this problem at a school in South Africa by providing school supplies and other logistical support to the students there. He plans to use the funds and mentorship he has been awarded to scale up his program and positively affect the lives of even more students.
Seoul International School
Eileen plans to use the funds and mentorship she has been awarded in order to produce a documentary film exploring some of the lesser known aspects of the Korean pop culture industry, as well as the various social situations that have led to its immense draw among the younger generation in South Korea today.
