Korea Foundation Grant to Support East Asian Studies
Mitsutaka Nakamura, Japanese and Korean studies librarian at Washington University Libraries, has been awarded a grant from the Korea Foundation to support the university’s Korean studies e-resources subscription expenses.
The $4,000 award from the Foundation will advance the field of Korean Studies at Washington University by enabling convenient access to a large number of Korean humanities and social sciences databases for students and scholars in the field of East Asian studies. Nakamura was also awarded a Korea Foundation grant last year to fund e-resources in Korean Studies at Washington University.
