Star Trek Double Whammy: The Kor Memorial Scholarship and Starfleet Academy Scholarship
At the foundation of the Kor Memorial Scholarship is the encouragement of foreign language study. While knowledge of the Klingon language is not required, it definitely wins you bonus points with the scholarship selection committee. The recipient of the $500 scholarship is announced each year at the KLI conference, or qep’a’ in Klingon.
