Academy of Korean Studies and the University of Washington     


On October 24th, 2011, the Center for Korea Studies signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS), and became the recipient of the Overseas Leading University Program for Korean Studies grant, part of the AKS' Korean Studies Promotion Service. This grant will bring an additional $1 million to the Korea Studies program at the University of Washington.   This is a historic event, not only because is it the second time the University of Washington has received such a grant from AKS, but also because this year the UW is one of only three recipients nationally, and one of only six worldwide.  Starting this autumn,  the grant will provide greatly increased funding for research, events, scholarships, and other projects at the Center for Korea Studies.
