In order to promote and encourage research on Korean studies, the Jae My Holdings Pty. Ltd. has established the Jae My Postgraduate Scholarship in Korean Studies at the University of Sydney, Australia. The scholarship will provide three years of support for a full-time Ph.D. student doing research on a topic in the humanities and social sciences in Korean studies.
Applicants should have an excellent honors degree or M.A. in Korean studies (or equivalent). Those awarded a scholarship must enroll as full-time Ph.D. students and pursue research in the Department of Korean Studies within the School of Languages and Cultures, Faculty of Arts at the University.
The scholarship stipend is $20,000 per year (tax exempt). The period of tenure is up to three years. Extension of the scholarship is not permitted. The scholarship does not cover tuition fees, so students will need to find other sources to fund their tuition.
Applications, including a curriculum vitae, copy of an academic transcript, a statement of purpose, and the names and contact details of at least two referees should be sent to Dr. Ki-Sung Kwak, Department of Korean Studies, School of Languages & Cultures, The University of Sydney, NSW 2006 Australia.
