2020 Support for Establishment of Professorship. Application Period: July 1 to September 10, 2019 (Deadline: September 10, 18:00 KST)
The KF provides financial support for efforts to create new professorships in the field of Korean studies and Korean language at various universities abroad that are equipped with the infrastructure necessary to maintain an adequate level of research and education on Korean studies and have future growth potential. Under this program, the KF funds the establishment and operation of two types of professorships: 1) the Tenure-Track Position, in which the support recipient university agrees to permanently maintain the position from its own resources after the termination of the KF’s support, and 2) the Endowment Chair position, in which the support recipient university operates a permanent professorship with the KF through a jointly created endowment fund.
