The 2020 POSCO Visiting Fellowship Program from East-West Center

The East-West Center announced the 2020 POSCO Visiting Fellowship Program, this fellowship is intended to promote research activities on Korean topics. The program invites outstanding scholars and policymakers to engage in policy-relevant, contemporary research on political, security, and economic issues in Northeast Asia, as they relate to Korea.

Each year, from the beginning of March to the end of February of the following year, the East-West Center hosts four to six POSCO Visiting Fellows. The POSCO Visiting Fellows are in residence at the East-West Center for one to two months and undertake research and writing on an agreed topic. Fellows are provided with a stipend and round-trip economy airfare between their home base and Honolulu. They are required to give one seminar, prepare a high-quality paper to be submitted for publication, and join in East-West Center activities. Fellows may also be asked to participate in local outreach and public-diplomacy activities.  Proposals for cost-shared fellowships are welcomed.

Areas of Research:

POSCO Visiting Fellows carry out policy-relevant research on contemporary issues in Korean studies. In particular, the POSCO Fellowship Program is intended to generate constructive and informative research in four important areas: 

  • The two Koreas and Northeast Asia; 
  • Security issues for Korea and Northeast Asia; 
  • Economic and social issues in South Korea; 
  • Political challenges in Korea.

Expected Outputs:

Under the Korea Foundation grant agreement, POSCO Visiting Fellows are required to prepare a quality paper addressing an issue in one of the four priority areas or as developed in the fellowship proposal for publication in an academic journal or in book format.  POSCO Visiting Fellows customarily provide a presentation on their research activities and findings at a center-wide seminar at the conclusion of the fellowship.
