Establishment of Professorships

The Korea Foundation establishes professorships in Korean language programsand Korean studies programs at overseas universities equipped with infrastructure and potential for growth.

The Foundation provides support for Korea-related courses and research in universities by establishing professorships in Korean language and Korean studies programs.

There are two types of professorships under this program: first, a TTP(tenure-track position) professorship with initial partial salary support from the Foundation for a given period of time, provided the recipient university maintains the position after the completion of the Foundation’s support; and second, an endowed professorship permanently managed by the university, with support from a fund jointly operated by the Foundation and the university.
