The Jae S. Lim MIT-Korea Program seed funds support new collaborations between faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts in Korea.

MIT-Korea - KAIST Seed Fund

Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues at KAIST. The Korean colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $30,000.

Priority will be given to projects that:    

  • propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Korean participants
  • demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Korean teams
  • involve undergraduate and graduate students

The MIT-Korea - KAIST Seed Fund is part of the MISTI Global Seed Funds. All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application and evaluation procedures apply.
