USC Korean Studies Institute invites applications for graduate fieldwork grants (deadline: February 28, 2013)
USC doctoral students in all disciplines are eligible to apply for summer fieldwork support.
The USC Korean Studies Institute funds research that pertains to Korea or that involves Korea as part of a larger comparative or interdisciplinary research. We particularly encourage proposals from the social sciences and non-traditional fields, such as Korean-American studies. However, we define “Korean Studies” broadly, and any USC doctoral students in all disciplines are invited to apply for summer fieldwork grants.
This support enables USC doctoral students to carry out field research on a topic addressing an aspect of Korean Studies. As a result of this field research, students should be better able to develop their dissertation prospectuses and more compelling dissertation research proposals for major funding agencies.
Students may request up to $2,000.
The grants may be used to
• visit archives, critical libraries, or other institutions;
• carry out interviews, surveys, or other fieldwork
These grants are not intended for
- study in language training programs (the East Asian Studies Center has fellowships for language training)
- forging professional or network relations
- conference participation
- work that could be completed while in residence at USC
- equipment or book purchases
Recipients will be required to submit a 2-page summary of the results of their research at the conclusion of their project, before receiving reimbursement.
