The Research Center for Korean Community (RCKC) at Queens College of CUNY is pleased to announce the 2013 NADRI Dissertation Scholarship Program. RCKC awards scholarships annually to promote doctoral students’ academic research on Korean Americans. In 2013, RCKC plans to award three scholarships of $3,000 each. RCKC awarded scholarships in 2010-2012, using its own funds in 2010 and 2012, and receiving funds from The Global Society of Korea and America in 2011. NADRI Incorporated, a Korean jewelry business, was generous enough to provide funds for the scholarships.
Rules and Eligibility: The applicant must be a currently-enrolled student in the dissertation stage of an accredited doctoral program in the social sciences at a United States university.
Application Process: All applications are reviewed by a Scholarship Selection Committee consisting of five faculty members.
Selection criteria include:
(1) The overall merit of the proposal (theory, research methods, and insights)
(2) The importance of the topic (the issue) for the Korean community
(3) The probability of the doctoral student to have a successful career as a scholar of Korean Americans after completing the dissertation.
