Asiatic Research Institute 2010 Fellowship Program for Northeast Asian Studies

The Asi­at­ic Research Insti­tute at Korea Uni­ver­si­ty solic­its appli­ca­tions for its Fel­low­ship Pro­gram for North­east Asian Stud­ies. The pro­gram is designed to pro­vide schol­ars and doc­tor­al can­di­dates of for­eign coun­tries with an oppor­tu­ni­ty to car­ry out research on top­ics relat­ed to North­east Asia at Korea Uni­ver­si­ty. The appli­ca­tion dead­line is August 31, 2010.

Indi­vid­u­als in the human­i­ties and social sci­ences who are cur­rent­ly engaged in North­east Asia-related research and teach­ing activ­i­ties are eli­gi­ble to apply. The fel­low­ship is not open to Kore­an nation­als, except those with res­i­dent sta­tus in for­eign coun­tries. Pri­or­i­ty will be giv­en to schol­ars who have received their Ph.D. degree with­in five years of their appli­ca­tion and doc­tor­al can­di­dates who have com­plet­ed all aca­d­e­m­ic require­ments except the dis­ser­ta­tion (ABDs).

The fel­low­ship peri­od is for up to six months and may begin any time between Jan­u­ary 1 and Decem­ber 31. Tak­ing into account the time required for the review process, appli­cants must plan to begin their fel­low­ship peri­od at least one month behind the appli­ca­tion dead­line.

The Fel­low­ship grant includes:

  • Economy-class round-trip air­fare (only pro­vid­ed to those who are based over­seas pri­or to the fel­low­ship peri­od). Reim­burse­ment of air­fare will be pro­vid­ed after arrival.
  • Free accom­mo­da­tion either on or off cam­pus.
  • Access to ARI facil­i­ties, includ­ing Korea Uni­ver­si­ty libraries, and a com­mu­nal office to be shared with oth­er vis­it­ing fel­lows.

While at the ARI, fel­lows will be encour­aged to present work-in-progress and to con­duct joint research with ARI mem­bers.

The appli­ca­tion form can be down­loaded from the Web site: Appli­ca­tions must include a cur­ricu­lum vitae, research pro­pos­al, and evi­dence of cur­rent employ­ment or affil­i­a­tion (if pos­si­ble). All required mate­ri­als should be sub­mit­ted via e-mail attach­ment or by send­ing orig­i­nal doc­u­ments by post. Doc­u­ments must be post­marked no lat­er than the August 31 dead­line.

Appli­cants will receive a con­fir­ma­tion e-mail with­in five days. Fel­low­ship awardees will be noti­fied indi­vid­u­al­ly.

Inquiries and requests for fur­ther infor­ma­tion should be sent by e-mail to or to:
