Graduate Fellowships in Korean Studies

Center for Korean Studies Student Travel Support — Applications considered on a rolling basis throughout the academic year

CKS has a small fund to support current Berkeley graduate and undergraduate travel for scholarly purposes connected with the study of Korea. In most cases, support will go to students traveling to present a paper or participate in some other meaningful way to an organized event. Maximum award per application is $800. Awards will be made based on the merit of individual applications. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the academic year.

Students interested in this support should submit the following:

  1. A 1-2 page proposal including a description of the project and details about the student's role
  2. A budget for travel
  3. Proof of invitation and/or a copy of the program or agenda; and, when applicable, a copy of the paper to be presented.
  4. At the completion of travel, students will need to submit a brief (1/2 page) report, and may be asked to give a presentation.

2015 Summer Graduate Seminar in Korean Studies at Seoul National University — Applications due April 1

The Center for Korean Studies is pleased to announce its third annual graduate student seminar to be held at Seoul National University. Approximately seven continuing UC Berkeley graduate students with a research focus on Korea will be selected to travel to Korea in early July (July 7) where they will give presentations and receive feedback from faculty and fellow graduate students at Seoul National University. This opportunity is possible thanks to generous support from the Academy of Korean Studies, and aims to nurture young scholars with interests in Korean studies, and promote ties between UC Berkeley and Korean universities.

Annual Fellowship Competition for Continuing Graduate Students — Applications due April 1

The Center for Korean Studies announces its 2015-2016 fellowship competition for continuing graduate students in Korean Studies. CKS will accept applications for most academic purposes including pre-dissertation research, dissertation research, dissertation writing, and summer language study. A specific plan of research/study (not a general request for support) must be included with your application. CKS has limited funds available this year. Subject to availability of funding, a small number of competitive awards of up to $6,000 (maximum) are available. We expect most awards, however, will be in the $1,500-$3,500 range.
