Visiting Scholar Program
The Center for Korea Studies accepts ten to twelve scholars annually to conduct research at the University of Washington. Visiting Scholars are encouraged to use the extensive collections of the University of Washington library system and other university research facilities, and to meet and work with the faculty of the Jackson School for International Studies and the university in general. The Visiting Scholar Program provides an excellent opportunity to join in the academic life of the university community as well as to experience life in the diverse communities of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
Visiting Scholars are those who have been granted leave and financial support to pursue research while they continue full-time employment at their home institution. Such scholars may visit the University of Washington for a period of six months to one year, for the purpose of research and interaction with students and scholars on campus. The Center for Korea Studies has no office space to offer, but can sponsor a limited number of visas and provide for access to University of Washington research and recreational facilities. Visiting Scholars are strongly encouraged to both attend and present their research at Center of Korea Studies colloquia offered throughout the academic year.
The Korea Studies Program has no office space to offer, but can sponsor a limited number of visas, and provide for access to such University of Washington institutions as the library. In recent years demand has exceeded our capacity and we have had to limit the number we accept. We now evaluate applications only four times a year in December, March, June and September. Scholars who wish to apply for visiting status should provide us with a CV, an affidavit of support from their institution, and a plan of study. Material should be sent to:
Center for Korea Studies
Jackson School of International Studies
University of Washington
Seattle, WA 98195
or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications need to be received by December 10, March 10, June 10 or September 10 for the relevant competition. Scholars should plan to apply a minimum of three months before they would like to arrive. Evaluation will take several weeks.
