Pyong Gap Min, Director of the Center said, "Competition for the scholarships this year was very strong.  As a result, four very promising doctoral students were selected as recipients."  

The Committee was initially meant to select three recipients, each receiving $3,000. However, due to the strong applications of both the third and fourth-place candidates, the Committee decided to award both, each receiving $1,500.

Six recipients of last and this year's Dissertation Scholarships are scheduled to participate in a one-day conference to be held on November 17, 2012 - at Queens College tentatively. The six Dissertation Scholars are expected to present their papers based on portions of their dissertations. 

The Global Society for Korea and America (President: Hyun Suk Kang) provides a fund of $9,000 for the Fellowships. Every year, the Research Center publicizes the Scholarships, collects applications, and selects three recipients.  The Research Center also supports the recipients' visits to New York City for the conference.
