  2. the term ‘post-graduate’ includes taught and research degrees.
  3. the programme of study or research must be largely if not wholly focussed on Korea, past or present.
  4. preference will be given to programmes of study or research in the area of the humanities or social sciences broadly defined, although other areas could be given consideration in exceptional circumstances.
  5. preference will be given to students whose programme of study or research includes the study of and/or the use of the Korean language.
  6. there is no restriction on how the bursary will be used by the student.
  7. at the end of the academic session in which the bursary is received, the recipient will write a brief letter describing how the bursary furthered the recipient’s studies. This should be addressed to the Anglo-Korean Society and sent to the chairman of the Bursary Committee of the British Association for Korean Studies.
