Summer Funding, 2019

Summer funding for Chinese at Princeton in Beijing and Japanese at Princeton in Ishikawa:

If you are accepted into PIB or PII and are on general university aid, you will automatically be considered for funding and the amount you will receive will be based upon the percentage of general aid you're currently receiving. Thus, you do not need to apply for support.

This funding differs from general aid in that the funding comes from smaller pools of money (i.e. from the EAS Program and the Dean's Fund).  This means that it is unlikely that you will receive enough funding to cover all expenses, but it should enable you to attend the program.


Summer funding for Korean language programs:

If you are on general university aid and are accepted into an approved  Korean language program, you may apply for some student-initiated financial aid from the EAS Program via the SAFE site. Please note that this funding comes from EAS Program funds, and will not cover everything, but instead is designed to give you a helping hand.

Approved Programs

The East Asian Studies Program will provide partial funding for students taking 10-week intensive Korean language courses at these schools:

--Ewha Women’s University

--Sogang University

--Seoul National University

--Yonsei University

*Please consult with you Korean Instructor to identify the approved program at each school. Some schools have shorter courses that we don’t support.

Note: If you are interested in less intensive Korean language programs that may allow you to also take content courses, please look into the Office of International Programs’ (OIP) Dean’s Fund for support.
