Contingent upon available funding, the Korea Institute may welcome applications for financial support for evidently Korean studies-related activities by and involving ANU staff members and postgraduate students, the results of which must be intended for wide dissemination. Applications would have to provide evidence of prior engagement in the pursuit of knowledge on Korea or Korea-Australia relations, and demonstrate the project’s benefit to ANU. The KI Board would review applications on a date specified later (on this page). Please note that for budgetary or other reasons, it might decide to award only a percentage of the amount requested.

Applications would have to include the following information:

  • Name of School and College associated with the proposal.
  • List of disciplines the proposal draws from. For example: political science, IR, security studies, humanities, or business, etc.
  • Rationale (max. 1,000 words)
  • Detailed budget (please note guidelines below).
  • Projected outcome(s) (max. 1,000 words)*

Successful applicants would be able to use the funds to cover the cost of travel or hosting non-ANU scholars, up to a total of AUD$ 5,000 per visitor. Any travel would have to be based on economy-class airfares, with the daily cost of accommodation, meals and incidentals combined corresponding with current ATO rates. Accommodation could not be covered for more than 14 consecutive days; if alternative accommodation arrangements were available, the remaining cost of meals and incidentals ought not to exceed 50% of current ATO per diems. KI funding might be used for the acquisition of research materials, provided they are not already held at or cannot be purchased by one of ANU’s libraries.

NB: marketing of any KI-supported event(s) or publication must acknowledge the “ANU Korea Institute”.
