Scranton, the founder of Ewha Haktang and Po Goo Nyo Goan, which were the first women's educational institution and women's hospital in Korea, respectively, as well as Lulu E. Frey, who established the College at Ewha Haktang under the ironclad conviction that a nation’s future depends on its women and thereby contributed significantly to the education of Korea's first women to earn a bachelor's degree. Through the stories of the two icons of Ewha, President Kim highlighted the three keywords embodied by the slogan “Ewha Vaccine CTT”: Challenge (Ewha students with a challenging spirit), Thankful (Ewha students who feel and express gratitude) and Trailblazer (Ewha students with the capability of pioneering a new era). “I hope each of you will grow as a person who is capable of fulfilling your calling with a challenging sprit, devoting yourself to building a better society and world while appreciating the love and blessings you’ve received, and shaping a bright future based on the new possibilities you discovered by inheriting the spirit of Ewha, a true trailblazer through generations,” remarked President Kim in a message to the graduating students.

At the commencement ceremony, a total of 176 international students from countries around the world such as the U.S., Vietnam, Japan, China, and France, including four scholarship recipients from the Ewha Global Partnership Program (EGPP), received their diplomas with 69 students receiving a bachelor’s degree and 107 earning a master’s degree or a doctoral degree. The EGPP under Ewha Womans University was designed to select talented women from developing countries and provide full scholarships and living expenses in a bid to educate and nurture global female talent. Boasting outstanding academic performances, recipients of the scholarship are expected to make full use of the capabilities they honed at Ewha after graduation, either finding employment in Korea and abroad, or entering into higher education programs.
