Programs

The Institute for Korean Studies offers the following programs to support research in Korean Studies by University of Missouri faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates.

Coffee and Conversation: Manuscript Review Workshops

IKS supports interdisciplinary manuscript review workshops for faculty or graduate students who would like feedback on a Korea-related article manuscript.  Coffee and snacks will be provided. 

Summer Research Small Grants (Undergraduate/Graduate) 

MU undergraduate or graduate students conducting summer research on a topic related to Korea can apply for funding to defray the costs of their research. This might include travel to the Truman Library or another archive, purchase of Korean-language materials for the MU library collections, supplemental funding for summer fieldwork in Korea, or another related expense. Grantees are required to submit documentation of expenses and activities and a summary of the resulting research product.

Research Assistant Program: IKS-Affiliated Faculty & Asian Affairs Center Visiting Fellows 

This program matches undergraduate or graduate students who are interested in gaining research experience with IKS-affiliated faculty and/or Visiting Fellows from Korea (hosted by the Asian Affairs Center) who are working on a Korea-related research project.
