Fellowship and Training Opportunities

Advancing leaders in Korean studies

We support eminent and emerging scholars and professionals by teaching undergraduate and graduate students, offering educational outreach activities, and providing a variety of fellowship and visiting scholar opportunities.

As a premier research hub on contemporary Korea, we attract every year esteemed academics, government and military experts, civil society leaders, and emerging talent from Korea and elsewhere to our fellowship and visiting scholar programs. Our affiliates and fellows teach Stanford courses, engage in research and publishing projects, contribute to our vibrant community, and continue their association with the Program after leaving Stanford through an active alumni association.

The Korea Program partners with Stanford’s Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS), which offers a master's degree in East Asian Studies with a specialization in Korea, and we often co-organize lectures on Korean history, culture, and literature.

We also support the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) in its educational outreach to U.S. secondary teachers and students by helping develop curriculum units on Korea and online courses on Korea for high school students.
