Faculty Research Grants

2010-2011 Faculty and Graduate Student Grants in Korean Studies

Deadline: March 1, 2010
1. Faculty Research Enhancement Grants
UBC faculty planning research focused on Korea are encouraged to apply to the Centre for Korean Research for an individual research enhancement grant for the 2010-2011 academic year. Applicants may request up to $3,000 for one project. Grants made by the Committee are intended for the support of scholarly research that will contribute to the field of Korean Studies.
An application should include:
(1) a two-page research proposal for research to be completed by February 28, 2011
(2) a proposed budget
(3) a list of publications over the last five years (2005-2010)
(4) a preferred date (year and month) of a presentation on the results of the research
(5) a result of the most recent research funded by this category of grants in the form of a copy of a completed manuscript or a publication.
The Centre for Korean Research requires that all those who receive a CKR research grant
(a) make a presentation at a CKR seminar within a year of receiving that grant in which the results of the research funded by that grant are shared with the CKR community.
(b) applicants may not apply for another CKR grant until they have shared the results of the research supported by CKR funding.
If a grantee is unable to utilize that research grant in the year for which it was awarded, the grantee may extend that grant for one more year. In the meantime, that grantee will not be eligible for any other CKR grants.
2. Faculty Publications Support Grants
For grants in this category, applications may not be made for both simultaneously.
(A) Faculty Time-Release Grants
The CKR invites UBC faculty to apply for a minimum cost (up to $10,000) for one 3-credit release from teaching for one term in order to devote more time to research. The purpose of these time-release grants is to encourage full-time UBC faculty to publish original monographs and books in the field of Korean Studies by granting them time off from teaching.
Selection Criteria:
These funds are intended for faculty in the final stages of presenting a single-authored manuscript for publication. Edited volumes are excluded from consideration.
Once a faculty member has received a CKR time-release grant, he or she will not be eligible to apply again until the original project has been completed (published).
An application should include:
(1) a copy of a manuscript over two-thirds complete
(2) a 2-3 page description of the project
(3) the table of contents
(4) a replacement teaching budget
(B) CKR Faculty Publications-in-Contract Support Grants
The Centre for Korean Research invites applications for its Faculty Publications-in-Contract Support Grants. UBC faculty members with a completed manuscript which has been accepted for publication can apply for up to $5,000 for miscellaneous expenses (indexing, editing, proofreading, formatting, etc.) to be incurred in the process of publication.
An application should include:
(1) a one-page description of the project and the table of the contents
(2) a copy of the contract that shows that a completed manuscript has been accepted for publication
(3) a budget
All faculty applications should be submitted to Nam-lin Hur, Director, Centre for Korean Research, Institute of Asian Research, C.K.ChoiBuilding, by March 1, 2010.



Graduate Students Research Grants

3. Graduate Student Research Grant
UBC graduate students needing to travel for Korea-related research may apply to the CKR for reimbursement of up to $1,000 of their travel and research-related expenses.
Applicants for such a grant need to provide the CKR director with a proposed budget and an explanation of why they need to make that research trip before leaving on the trip. If the CKR management committee approves their request for support, they will be reimbursed up to $1,000 upon presentation of receipts for travel and research-related expenses.
There are two deadlines annually: October 1 and March 1. Up to five grants may be available in any given academic year.
Research related to a doctoral dissertation or masters’ thesis will be given preference. This grant will not provide support for travel to conferences.
