The Oh Award

The Oh Award is awarded annually by the Georgetown University Asian Studies Faculty Committee to an undergraduate student to support overseas study of Korean language and culture or other activities related to Korean studies, such as research, internship, and service. The Oh Award includes a cash prize of $500 and is open to students from the School of Foreign Service and the College.

This award is made possible by Bonnie B.C. Oh, Distinguished Professor of Korean Studies at Georgetown University, and the late John Kie-Chiang Oh, Professor Emeritus of Politics at the Catholic University of America and a Ph.D. alumnus of Georgetown University. 

Students interested in this award should submit a detailed proposal explaining how they plan on using the prize, as well as an electronic copy of their resume to rml74@georgetown.edu by mid-April. Students are also welcome to submit hard copies to the SFS Asian Studies Program located in ICC 302.
