AATK-KOREA
FOUNDATION GRADUATE TA FELLOWSHIP GRANT


American
Association of Teachers of Korean (AATK) is pleased to announce a call for applications
for a graduate student teaching fellowship with sponsorship from the Korea
Foundation now in its sixth year. The fellowship provides seed funding for
establishing a new Korean program or expanding an existing program at a college
in the United States and 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. 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.   


Interested
applicants should submit a cover letter, the application form (see the link
below), and an endorsement letter from the department chair or relevant
administrator by March 15,
2012
. 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 number of course sections to accommodate larger enrollments     

Applications
will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the AATK board members and
officers. The selection will be based on assessments of: whether the need is valid
and well-founded, whether the graduate TA’s role and responsibilities are well-defined with proper guidance/direction,
whether the department/unit is supportive and committed enough to continue or upgrade
the TA support after the funding has expired, and whether the program exhibits
a significant growth or development potential.  


All
application material should be submitted electronically to Prof. Hae-Young Kim,
the Executive Secretary (haeyoung@duke.edu)
by March 15, 2012.  The review and notification of the results
will be completed by April 15th, 2012.
