The Nam Center is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2014 KAFE travel grant
The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies is now accepting applications for its 2014 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 ).
The Nam Center for Korean Studies will award, on a competitive basis, one grant to cover the costs associated with attending the Korea Academy for Educators Workshop in Los Angeles CA, from July 20th to July 25th, 2014. The grant will include air travel, lodging, a stipend and most meals. Applicants must be an educator currently teaching at a public or private K-12 school in Michigan to be eligible. Previous participants at Nam Center Educator Workshops will be given preferred consideration. The deadline for applications is May 30, 2014.
