A letter of invitation is preferred
Invitation Requirement Additional Information
Applicants are encouraged to obtain a letter of invitation from the potential host institution and submit it at the time of application. While applicants without an invitation letter may indicate preferred affiliations, they should not make direct commitments regarding an affiliation. The Korean-American Educational Commission will arrange and finalize all affiliations in consultation with potential hosts.
Affiliations will be with public, national or private institutions in Korea. Korea has a diverse pool of private universities. In addition, major national universities are also willing to host Fulbright grantees.
Applicants who offer overly specific teaching/research approaches or less standard project themes will be difficult to place at a university in Korea.
Language Proficiency Requirements
None, English is sufficient. However, feasibility of conducting the project must be demonstrated in the project statement
Additional Language Requirement
All teaching will be delivered in English. Student levels of English comprehension may vary. Teachers may need to adjust class materials accordingly and be innovative and patient in teaching.

Teaching/research applicants must submit the Language Proficiency Report: Self Evaluation and Language Proficiency Report: External Evaluation. Native speakers need only to complete the Language Proficiency Report: Self Evaluation. Applicants without Korean language skills should explicitly address this issue in their discussion of the feasibility of the project in their project proposal.
