Visiting Scholars

Visiting scholar information

The Institute for Korean Studies offers affiliation to scholars and fellows visiting Indiana University for an extended period. Eligible affiliates include faculty holding appointments at other universities, researchers at research institutions, professionals from media and civic organizations, government officials, and artists, who seek to conduct research on topics related to Korea. Residencies may last up to 12 months, but may be renewable for an additional year. During the residency, our institute provides scholars with access to the IU academic community and its renowned library system, and welcomes their educational, intellectual, and artistic contributions to both the university and the larger Bloomington community. Indiana University offers two types of affiliation: (1) Visiting Scholars and (2) Visiting Fellows.

Visiting scholar eligibility: Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. or other comparable terminal graduate or professional degree (i.e., J.D., M.D., M.F.A.), and hold a faculty or other permanent research position at an accredited university, college, or research institution.

Visiting fellow eligibility: Eligible non-academic visiting fellows are senior government officials, researchers at research institutes or civic organizations, and prominent figures in business, politics, journalism and activism.
