The KF dispatches visiting professors of relevant fields to universities abroad that are planning to launch or expand Korean studies or Korean language courses but are currently experiencing difficulties in staffing their faculty with adequately qualified candidates.



Support for Employment of Contract Faculty Member

The Korea Foundation provides financial support to universities abroad seeking to hire new contract faculty members (non-tenure track) with the goal of creating or expanding their Korean language or Korean studies program.
