Nam Center Undergraduate Fellows Program (continued)

The Nam Center for Korean Studies Undergraduate Fellowship Program seeks to stimulate and support undergraduate students' interest in exploring various topics about Korea. The Fellows Program welcomes U-M undergraduate students who are invested in studies on Korea, interested in cultivating the Nam Center Fellows community, and committed to become an active member of the Nam Center for Korean Studies. A few highlights of the fellowship include: conducting research on Korea, presenting research papers at U-M USC Undergraduate Fellows Conference, and acting as liaisons between the Nam Center and the campus community.

The fellowship is conferred upon the fellow’s fulfillment of the fellowship requirements. If the fellow fails to abide by the conditions of the fellowship, the Nam Center has the right to annul the fellowship. Please see below for more detailed information on the benefits and requirements of the Nam Center Undergraduate Fellows Program.
