Dear KSEA members,

The Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA) is pleased to announce an opportunity for the 2023 KSEA Young Investigator Grants (YIGs), which intend to recognize those who have demonstrated outstanding early career development in science, engineering and/or technology. Two grants will be awarded this year as follows:

Grant: US $10,000 for each awardee with travel support up to $1,000 to attend the award ceremony at UKC 2024.

Application Period: From October 31, 2023 to December 23, 2023

Description: The KSEA Young Investigator Grant is the KSEA's highest recognition given to young professionals who earned a doctoral degree in science or engineering, and have been working in academia, industry, or government for no more than 6 years after the applicant received a Ph. D degree. Two YIGs will be awarded this year: one grant selected from Science, and the other from Engineering. Applicants should select either Science or Engineering based on their research field.

Eligibility: Each applicant should have received a Ph.D. degree within six years of the application (On or after January 1, 2018). Applicant should be a KSEA member at the time of application. If not a current member, join or renew KSEA membership through https://www.ksea.org/signUp.

Application: Application for the grant should be received through the KSEA website at https://www.ksea.org/yig. The required materials are a curriculum vitae, a research or technology development plan for one year (five pages), and three reference letters. The application package must specify the pertinent Technical Subgroup (A through D) in which it is to be evaluated. A list of 16 KSEA Technical subgroups may be found at https://www.ksea.org/technical-g.

Evaluation: Evaluation of the applications and selection of the successful applicants will be conducted the KSEA Honors & Awards Committee (HAC) in collaboration with Technical Group Councilors and their representatives. The recipients will be announced on the KSEA web page and via email March 31, 2024.

Administration: The grant is awarded through the recipient’s institution in the United States, not directly to the recipient. The recipient must submit a final report, which summarizes the achievements supported through the grant and expenditure details. The final report is due at the end of the grant period of 1 year. The technical part of the report should be in the form of a featured article that can be published in KSEA Letters. An additional travel reimbursement up to US $1,000 will be provided to the recipient to attend the award ceremony at UKC 2024.

For any questions, please contact the KSEA, sejong@ksea.org.
