A student from Busan recently received a scholarship from funds donated by BTS‘s Jimin.
In April, Jimin quietly donated 100 million won (approximately $88,000 USD) to the Busan Metropolitan City Office of Education. 30 million won (approximately $26,000 USD) of this donation was reportedly sent to his old high school.
Jimin’s donation is helping to fund school food expenses, student welfare, student council activities, and self-regulated classes. It’s also supporting students from low-income families.
On October 3, a recipient posted about her scholarship on Twitter. She wrote, “Getting a scholarship from my singer,” with the comical but true hashtag, #AnExperience90PercentofTwitterMutualsWouldNotHave.

This certificate states that the student was awarded the scholarship for being a model student with a sincere attitude and upright character.
Thanks to Jimin’s generosity and her own hard work, this student can focus on completing her studies, rather than paying for them.
