This program is designed to promote Korean studies and foster young scholars in this field by providing graduate students majoring in Korean studies in North America with scholarships for their coursework and/or research while enrolled at their home institutions. It covers students only through the year that they are advanced to candidacy and only if they are in residence and not engaged in overseas research. Scholarships are for one academic year only. Scholarship recipients may reapply in succeeding years for additional support. However, they will be judged competitively against that year's pool of applicants. The Fellowship Period for Ph.D. Students is up to four successive years (coursework: 3 years; dissertation: 1 year); and for M.A. Students, Up to two successive years. Scholarship amounts will be determined by the review committee, but generally will be in the range of $10,000–$20,000. Awards will be provided in the form of flat stipends and are intended to cover living expenses and/or tuition costs. The application deadline is usually in January.
