POSCO VISITING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The POSCO Visiting Fellowship Program, endowed by POSCO, is intended to promote research activities on Korean topics at the East-West Center. The Program invites outstanding scholars and policy makers to engage in policy-relevant, contemporary research on political, security, and economic issues in Northeast Asia, as they relate to Korea.
Nature of the Fellowship
POSCO visiting fellows are in residence at the East-West Center for one to two months and undertake research and writing on an agreed topic. Fellows are provided with a stipend and round trip economy airfare between their home base and Honolulu. They are required to give one seminar, prepare a high quality paper to be submitted for publication, and join in East-West Center activities. The Fellow may also be asked to participate in local outreach and public diplomacy activities. Proposals for cost-shared fellowships are welcomed.
Areas of Research
Each year during the period from March 1 through the end of February of the following year, the East-West Center invites four to six visiting fellows. These fellows will spend one or two months each carrying out policy-related research on contemporary issues in Korean studies. In particular, the POSCO Fellowship Program is intended to generate constructive and informative research in four important areas: (1) issues concerning the two Koreas and Northeast Asia; (2) security issues involving Korea and Northeast Asia; (3) economic and social issues in Korea; and (4) political development in South Korea.
Applicants who can provide some of the cost of the fellowship should indicate what costs they are able to cover.
