Applications are now open for high-caliber undergraduate and graduate students to represent the U.S. as American delegates for the 11th Korea-America Student Conference (KASC), which will be held July 20 - August 10, 2018. Delegates will travel to two locations in the United States (Missoula, Montana and Seattle, Washington) and two locations in South Korea (Busan and Seoul). Over three weeks, they will have the unique opportunity to engage in academic, cultural, and professional exchange in both countries. They will participate in lectures, seminars, roundtable discussions, networking events, and cultural activities alongside their peers.

The Center for Korean Studies will provide one UC Berkeley student with a $2,000 scholarship to offset the program costs. Apply now through KASC.

Annual Fellowship Competition for Continuing Graduate Students — Applications due April 2, 2018

The Center for Korean Studies announces its 2018-2019 fellowship competition for continuing UC Berkeley 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.

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.

Please send applications to cks@berkeley.edu.
