AATK-KOREA
FOUNDATION GRADUATE TA FELLOWSHIP GRANT


 


The American
Association of Teachers of Korean (AATK) is pleased to announce a call for applications
for a graduate student teaching fellowship, now in its seventh year, with
sponsorship from the Korea Foundation (KF). The fellowship provides seed
funding for establishing a new Korean program or expanding an existing program
at a college in the North America. The funding is available for one year for a
maximum of USD 12,000, and can be renewed for one more year pending a
successful renewal application.  The
application should be submitted by a faculty in charge of or setting up a
Korean language program.


Interested
applicants should submit a cover letter, the application form (see the link
below), the applicant’s CV, and an endorsement letter from the department chair
or relevant administrator by March 1, 2013.


The following situations
will be considered as eligible for seeking the funding: 


1)
Starting a new Korean language program, or upgrading an existing
tutorial/self-instructional/critical language program to a regular program


2)
Introducing a separate track system (e.g. parallel courses for “heritage” and
“non-heritage” students) or a different course type (e.g. accelerated or
intensive courses)  


3)
Adding new courses and expanding course offerings (e.g. higher level courses)


4)
Increasing the number of course sections to accommodate larger enrollments     


The funds must
be used to hire a graduate student for classroom teaching, which could range
from teaching a course on their own, to being in charge of a section or
sections of a course coordinated by the main instructor, to conducting
drill/practice sessions as part of a course under the supervision of the
instructor.  


Applications
will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the AATK officers and a KF
representative. The selection will be based on assessments of whether
:


·      the need is valid
and well-founded,


·      the graduate TA’s
role and responsibilities are
well-defined with proper guidance/direction,

·      the
department/unit is supportive and committed enough to continue or upgrade the
TA support after the funding has expired,


·       the program exhibits a significant growth or
development potential.  


All
application material should be submitted electronically to Dr. Joowon Suh, the
Executive Secretary (
suh@princeton.edu),
by March 1, 2013.
  The review
and notification of the results will be completed by March 31, 2013.
