The Research Center for Korean Community

Dissertation Scholarships

To encourage research on Korean Americans, the Center will select three dissertations focusing on Korean Americans each year and award each $3,000 to the doctoral students.

The center will invite each of the recipients to New York City to give a presentation on his/her completed dissertation to the Korean community.

We will publicize dissertation scholarships widely through professional Internet networks; a five-member committee will select the winners through formal reviews of their proposals and C.V.s.
