The Academy of Korean Studies has announced its Korean studies grant program for 2013. The aim of the grants is “to deepen the world’s understanding of Korea by supporting academic activities that will help spread Korean studies and nurture talented scholars of Korean studies.”
The AKS grants program consists of three categories:
- Visiting Lectureships, which place qualified Korean studies lecturers in selected universities to promote Korean studies;
- Competitive Research Funding, which supports investigator-chosen individual or collaborative research on Korea-related subjects; and
- Workshop and Conference Support for academic workshops and conferences on Korea-related subjects to be held between June 2013 and May 2014.
These grants are open to faculty and researchers affiliated with education and research institutions outside Korea. The deadline for submitting applications is March 15, 2013. Applications and required supporting documents must be sent by both e-mail and postal mail.
