Support for Establishment of Professorship

Korea Foundation

The Korea Foundation provides financial support for efforts to create new professorships in the field of Korean studies and Korean language at various universities abroad that are equipped with the infrastructure necessary to maintain an adequate level of research and education on Korean studies and have future growth potential. Under this program, the Foundation funds the establishment and operation of two types of professorships: 1) the Tenure-track Position, in which the recipient university agrees to permanently maintain the position from its own resources after the termination of the Foundation’s support, and 2) the Endowment Chair position, in which the recipient university operates a permanent professorship with Korea Foundation through a jointly created endowment fund.
