The POSCO Visiting Fellowship Program, endowed by POSCO, is intended to promote research activities on Korean topics at the East-West Center. The program invites outstanding scholars and policymakers to engage in policy-relevant, contemporary research on political, security, and economic issues in Northeast Asia, as they relate to Korea.
Each year, from the beginning of March to the end of February of the following year, the East-West Center hosts four to six POSCO Visiting Fellows. They are required to give one seminar, prepare a high-quality paper to be submitted for publication, and join in East-West Center activities. Fellows may also be asked to participate in local outreach and public-diplomacy activities. Proposals for cost-shared fellowships are welcomed.
- The POSCO Visiting Fellows are in residence at the East-West Center for one to two months and undertake research and writing on an agreed topic.
- Fellows are provided with a stipend and round-trip economy airfare between their home base and Honolulu.
