The Center for Strategic and International Studies and the University of Southern California Korean Studies Institute invite applications for the U.S.-Korea NextGen Scholars Program, a two-year program supported in part by the Korea Foundation.
The U.S.-Korea NextGen Scholar Program provides opportunities for mid-career Korea specialists to discuss issues of importance to U.S.-Korea relations with policymakers, government officials, and opinion leaders in Korea and the United States; learn how to engage effectively with the media; participate in the policymaking process; and gain experience as public intellectuals helping to bridge the scholarly and policy communities and address issues of importance to the U.S.-Korea relationship.
Dr. Victor Cha and Dr. David Kang will serve as senior advisors, along with a group of senior scholars in both Korea and the United States.
Selected participants must write a brief paper and complete a video lecture as part of the program graduation and are required to attend program meetings in Washington, D.C. (fall 2015), Los Angeles, Calif. (spring 2016), and Korea (summer 2016).
Applicants must have a professional interest in Korea and plans for long-term engagement with Korea, be at mid-career level (several years of relevant experience), have a basic knowledge of the Korean language, and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
