Anglo-Korean Society Post-Graduate  Bursary 
Academic Session 2010/2011

The Anglo-Korean Society through the Bursary Committee of the British
Association for Korean Studies is offering a £500 bursary on a competitive
basis to post-graduate students. 

The Anglo-Korean Society was founded in 1956 to foster friendship between the
United Kingdom and the Republic of Korea.  By providing opportunities for
contacts between British nationals and Koreans residing in or visiting Britain,
the Society seeks to bring together everyone in the UK who has an interest in
Korean matters, and to act as a forum for social and cultural exchange in an
environment of friendship and understanding.  

Details of the Anglo-Korean Society Post-Graduate Bursary Programme are as
1) the bursary is open to students of British nationality who are registered to
do a post-graduate degree at a British university.

2) the term ‘post-graduate’ includes taught and research degrees.

3) the programme of study or research must be largely if not wholly focussed on
Korea, past or present.

4) preference will be given to programmes of study or research in the area of
the humanities or social sciences broadly defined, although other areas could
be given consideration in exceptional circumstances. 

5) preference will be given to students whose programme of study or research
includes the study of and/or the use of the Korean language.

6) there is no restriction on how the bursary will be used by the student.

7) at the end of the academic session in which the bursary is received, the
recipient will write a brief letter describing how the bursary furthered the
recipient’s studies. This should be addressed to the Anglo-Korean Society and
sent to the chairman of the Bursary Committee of the British Association for
Korean Studies.

Interested students should apply by doing the following:
1) complete an application form. 

2) obtain two (2) letters of recommendation from tutors or lecturers. 

The application and recommendation forms may be obtained from the chairman of
the Bursary Committee at the address shown below. Each letter of recommendation

signature of the recommender written across the fold. Completed applications
