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.

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.
