The Academy of Korean Studies invites graduate students majoring in Korean studies to apply for the new AKS Research Grant program.
Grants are available to non-Korean citizen graduate students who are working on a thesis in the field of Korean studies at an overseas university or who have completed the required coursework and to Korean citizens who have completed more than sixteen years of education outside of Korea that is compatible with Korea’s elementary, middle, high school, and college education. Applicants living in Korea during the application period are not eligible to apply.
Grants run for a period of six months and may be extended. They carry a monthly stipend of KRW 900,000; travel allowance (economy-class round-trip airfare); on-campus accommodations at the student’s expense; and access to AKS facilities, including the library. Successful candidates must arrive at the AKS by August 15, 2012.
A downloadable application form and description of the usual AKS elaborate application procedures and other stipulations are available on line at http://intl.aks.ac.kr/english/viewtopic.php?t=404. The deadline for applications is May 31, 2012. On-line applications (to firstname.lastname@example.org) are preferred, but applications sent by mail will be accepted if received before May 31, 2012.
