faculty and peers from various disciplines to receive creative and
critical input on improving their fieldwork plans or writing strategies.
The mentor faculty are Nancy Abelmann (University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign), Sun Joo Kim (Harvard University), Seungsook Moon
(Vassar College), and Jun Yoo (University of Hawaii at Manoa).

. Only full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship,
who are enrolled at US or Canadian institutions are eligible.
. Participants may be in any social science or humanities field.
. Applicants must have an approved dissertation prospectus but cannot
have completed writing for final submission.
. Special consideration will be given to students from universities that
are not major Korean Studies institutions.
