Korea Institute International Communication Foundation (ICF) Graduate Student Fellowship in Korean Literature

Date of Deadline: Friday, February 10, 2017, 5pm EST

The International Communication Foundation (ICF) Graduate Student Fellowship in Korean Literature at the Korea Institute, Harvard University for AY2017-2018

The Korea Institute at Harvard University provides fellowships to support Harvard graduate students whose research focuses on translations of Korean literature. The main purpose of this initiative is to provide funding to students who are no longer eligible to receive funding from GSAS financial aid, to free the students from teaching during the fellowship period in order to focus on their work, and to foster the growth of young scholars working on Korean literature and translation.

Funding is provided by the International Communications Foundation (ICF) of Seoul, Korea; the fellowship program is housed and administered by the Korea Institute at Harvard University. Proposals from Harvard doctoral students entering their third, fourth, fifth or sixth year of PhD study in GSAS are welcome to apply. Priority will be given to students most strongly committed to Korean literature translation projects, and who have some prior experience in translating Korean literature and who have demonstrated financial need.
