The POSCO Visiting Fellowship Program, endowed by POSCO, is intended to promote research activities on Korean topics at the East-West Center.

  • Security issues involving Korea and Northeast Asia;
  • Economic and social issues in Korea;
  • Political development in South Korea.


The Program invites outstanding scholars and policy makers to engage in policy-relevant, contemporary research on political, security, and economic issues in Northeast Asia, as they relate to Korea.
