Q. What is KF supporting program and who is eligible for supporting program for Korean Studies e-Resources from Korea Foundation?
The Korea Foundation(KF) offers its “Support for Korean Studies E-Resources” program. Under this program, the KF provides the support to selected universities to assist with the payment of the subscription/user fees required to access online Korean Studies resources so that these materials can be more readily available to Korea-related students, scholars, and relevant specialists. Four-year universities abroad that maintain a Korean Studies or Korean-language center, department or program, or an East Asian studies program, are eligible to apply for this supporting program. In addition, institutions with Korean Studies’ graduate students and scholars that need expanded access to electronic resources are also eligible to apply.
