Each year, the GW Institute for Korean Studies accepts visiting scholars from around the world, who are selected on a highly competitive basis to conduct research related to Korean studies. The visiting scholars carry an active role in the intellectual activities at the Institute of the Korean Studies as well as the Elliott School of International Affairs. The visiting scholars conduct individual research as proposed in the application by fully taking advantage of the resources available at GW and various resources available outside of the university such as think tanks and other organizations located in the Washington D.C. area. Along with the research work, the visiting scholars are expected to participate in activities such as attending events hosted by GWIKS and providing guest lectures in GW course related to their research topic. The visiting scholars must give a lecture presenting their research or submit a written research paper before the end of the term.
