OKSHF Research Grant at USC Korean Heritage Library

The Korean Heritage Library (KHL) at the University of Southern California is pleased to announce research grants for researchers, librarians, and educators in Korean Studies. Thanks to generous support from the Overseas Korean Studies and Heritage Foundation (OKSHF), the grant assists scholars in their use of USC Korean Heritage Library’s resources for research to promote scholarship in Korean Studies.


Scholars and librarians whose research can benefit from the resources at the USC Korean Heritage Library. We will give strong preference to distinguished scholars from Korea and other countries outside the United States and to those at domestic U.S. institutions with few Korean library resources.
