KOREA FOUNDATION GRADUATE TA FELLOWSHIP


Sponsored by Korea Foundation (KF), American Association of Teachers of Korean (AATK) is pleased to announce a call for proposal for a teaching fellowship for graduate students teaching Korean language. The purpose of this program is to expand and enhance Korean language education in America by providing stipend for graduate teaching assistants (TA) in those institutions which cannot afford to hire regular instructors to offer Korean language courses. The funding priority will be given to those institutions which:

 

1) Want to develop a new Korean language program from the scratch, or to upgrade an existing tutorial/self-instructional/critical language program to a regular program

 

2) Need an extra instructor to expand Korean language course offerings

 

3) Cannot afford to provide a drill instructor for a faculty such that the faculty is overloaded with too many teaching hours

 

4) Want to create separate tracks between heritage and non-heritage students.

 

The funding is initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for the second year pending the evidence of the effectiveness and promise of the program. The application should be submitted by a faculty who is in charge or support of Korean language program. The application material should include an application letter along with the application form in the attachment, as well as an endorsement letter from the head of the academic unit in which the Korean language program is housed. All application material should be submitted electronically to Prof. Hae-Young Kim, the Executive Secretary (haeyoung@duke.edu)

 

The application deadline is March 1. The application will be reviewed by the evaluation committee which consist of AATK officers and some executive board members, and the evaluation result will be notified by March 15.
