James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching across the university community on issues related to Korea. Endowed by a generous gift from Mr. James Joo-Jin Kim in 2011, the Program (originally established in 1997 as Center for Korean Studies) advises the university on Korea-related initiatives, sponsors conferences and lectures by invited speakers, awards grants to faculty members and students, hosts visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows, and undertakes community outreach effort toward a better understanding of Korea.
For academic year 2017-18, the James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies will select one (1) School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) doctoral student for participation in the Penn-Seoul National University Korean studies Ph.D. student exchange. A nominee must be a doctoral student in a humanities or social science field who has completed coursework and is working on a dissertation focused on Korea. Hosted by SNU Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies during the period of affiliation (September 1, 2017-August 31, 2018), the student will pay Penn any tuition or fees that (s)he may owe. The exchange student will be chosen on the basis of the competitively established merit of the proposals in light of resources offered by the partner university. A completed application form and a letter from the academic adviser must be e-mailed to the Kim Program (email@example.com) by 5 pm, Friday, February 3, 2017. Nominating chairs and nominees will be notified of the decision by mid-February.
