The travel grants cannot be used for participation in the AKSE conference as well as conferences organized or supported by Korean governmental organizations/agencies including the AKS and King Sejong Institute. For AKSE conference travel subsidies, please check the AKSE conference webpage.
*Grant recipients can have multiple funding sources for the same trip as long as double funding of identical items is avoided and the travel is not already supported by a Korean government agency.
