Independence Day


The first scholarship students of the Tiger Schofield Memorial Foundation visit the Independence Gate, built in 1897, in central Seoul, as part of their orientation course. The foundation commemorates Frank Schofield(1889-1970), a British-born Canadian veterinarian who taught in Korea and helped Koreans’ independence movement during the Japanese colonial ruling. To celebrate the centennial of his arrival in Korea, the foundation launched a scholarship foundation and selected the first 34 students. [TIGER SCHOFIELD MEMORIAL FOUNDATION]
