    The 5th KF-EAI Korea Friendship

    Member Recruitment



    East Asia Institute (EAI) is hosting the Korea Friendship project, sponsored by Korea Foundation (KF) for international students residing in Korea. In this project, international students whom are currently enrolled in universities in Korea will have opportunity to “explore,” “communicate,” and “empathize” Korea. We cordially welcome you to our “Korea Friendship” project.


    1. Project Details and Agenda

    The Korea Friendship project consists of three main programs: 1) “KF Academicus,” which consists of lecture series focusing on exploring the various aspects of the Korean society, 2) “KF Communicus,” which focuses on activities that promote communication of ideas and discussion with the Korean society, and 3) “KF Empathicus,” which provides international students opportunities to network not only with diverse groups of people in the Korean society, but also among themselves.
