KAFE Travel Grant

The Nam Center is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2015 KAFE travel grant

The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies is now accepting applications for its 2015 travel grant for Michigan educators to attend the Korea Academy for Educators seminar in Los Angeles, CA. The Korea Academy for Educators (KAFE) is a private, non-profit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to informing educators about Korea’s history and culture and the Korean American experience in order to promote cross-cultural understanding. This five-day program, located in the heart of the Korean community in America, immerses participants in all aspects of Korea, its culture, history, and people. If you are looking to develop and deepen your knowledge of Asia, your understanding of Korean-American relations, and to reach out to the Korean students in your classroom, this workshop will provide you with the materials and resources to understand this nation at the crossroads of East Asia.

For additional information, please see the seminar flyer and website.
