In order to promote and encourage research on Korean Studies, the Jae My Holdings Pty Ltd has established the Jae My Postgraduate Scholarship in Korean Studies at the University of Sydney. The second round of the Scholarship is now open. The Scholarship will provide 3 years of support for a full-time PhD student doing research on a topic in the humanities and social sciences in Korean Studies.
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants should have an excellent honours degree or MA in Korean Studies (or equivalent). Those awarded a scholarship must enroll as a full-time PhD student, and pursue research in the Department of Korean Studies within the School of Languages and Cultures, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University.
AMOUNT AWARDED: The scholarship stipend is $20,000 per year (tax exempt). The period of tenure is up to three years. Extension of the scholarship is not permitted. The Scholarship does not cover tuition fees, so students will need to find other sources to fund their tuition.
