The Korea Foundation-LSE Academic Exchange Programme Fellowship is not offered in the 2011-2012 academic year
History of the Korea Foundation-LSE Academic Exchange Programme
In 2007, the Korea Foundation and the LSE signed an Agreement to establish and operate the Korea Foundation- London School of Economics and Political Science Academic Exchange Programme at the Asia Research Centre of the LSE. Funded for three years initially through the generosity of the Korea Foundation, this programme aims to facilitate social science research on Korea and the understanding of Korea in the context of Asia and the wider world. This new programme was formally launched at the start of academic year 2008/09 with an inaugural Public Lecture (see below).
About the Academic Exchange
The Korea Foundation-LSE Academic Exchange Programme Fellowship enables selected Korean Fellows to be based at the Asia Research Centre at LSE for a minimum of three months up to a maximum of nine months during the LSE Academic Year in order to conduct her/his own proposed research. The Fellows are supported by a monthly subsistence allowance, the exact amount dependant on qualifications, and are provided with office space and access to research facilities at the School.
Korean nationals who are either post-doctoral researchers, early to mid-career practitioners or of all grades in the field of social sciences from Korean academic/research institutions or relevant government agencies are eligible without regard to institutional affiliation. Successful participants possess a doctoral degree in a social scientific discipline and a proven or emerging track record of research and publications in a relevant field.

The Korea Foundation-LSE Academic Exchange Programme also features public lecture and seminars to highlight social science research of importance and interest to Korea as well as Korea-related issues within an international context.
