APSI People: Visiting Scholars

APSI welcomes a select number of scholars from the Asian/Pacific region to visit Duke each year. Visiting scholars are nominated by APSI faculty members and are expected to conduct independent research and engage with faculty and students at Duke.

Duke Korea Research Fellows Program

Beginning in 2016, APSI will also accept applications from Korean professionals (i.e. - journalists, researchers, librarians, civil servants, educators) seeking to conduct independent study under the guidance of a Duke University mentor and with the assistance of the coordinating professors (Haeyoung Kim, Aimee Kwon, Emerson Niou, Eunyoung Kim, Hwansoo Kim, and Jongbae Park).
