Visiting Scholar and Fellow Program
The Nam Center for Korean Studies offers affiliation to scholars and fellows visiting the University of Michigan for an extended period. Eligible affiliates include faculty holding appointments at other universities, researchers at research institutions, professionals from media and civic organizations, government officials, and artists, who seek to conduct research on topics related to Korea. Residencies typically last 12 months but may be renewable for an additional year. During the residency, the center provides scholars with access to the U-M academic community and its renowned library system, and welcomes their educational, intellectual, and artistic contributions to both the university and the larger Ann Arbor community. The Nam Center offers two types of affiliation: (1) Visiting Scholars and (2) Visiting Fellows.
Visiting Scholar Eligibility
The applicants must have earned a PhD or other comparable terminal graduate or professional degree (i.e., JD, MD, MFA), and hold a faculty or other permanent research position at an accredited university, college, or research institution.
Visiting Fellow Eligibility
Eligible non-academic visiting fellows are senior government officials, researchers at research institutes or civic organizations, and prominent figures in business, politics, journalism and activism.
Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow Eligibility
The Nam Center welcomes affiliation requests from those applying for the Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship is funded and selected by the Korea Foundation's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
