The Korea Alumni Chapter offers the James T. Laney Book Award. Funding for the award was created by a group of Korean alumni to support students from Korea who are pursuing their studies at Emory. The award pays tribute to James T. Laney 94H, who was dean at Candler School of Theology (1969-1977), president of Emory University (1977-1993), and US Ambassador to South Korea (1993-1996). As ambassador, he helped defuse the nuclear crisis with North Korea in 1994. Laney's legacy includes increasing available scholarship funds to attract the best students; enhancing residence and dining facilities; providing adequate recreation facilities; and emphasizing collaboration among disciplines in order to create a richer intellectual climate. In 2009 Emory's graduate school was named the James T. Laney School for Graduate Studies.
