Student Resources

All MAPS students are provided individual carrels and computers in a MAPS research and study space in order to foster intellectual exchanges and collaboration beyond the classroom.

The graduate experience is also nourished by a variety of extra-curricular opportunities including involvement in the North Korea Research Group and the Asia Pacific Reader. MAPS students are invited to join the Munk School graduate student network, which allows students to expand their academic, social, and professional networks and opportunities. Each year, graduate students at the Munk School organize a conference, bringing in leading experts on an issue of global significance.

Domestic MAPS students are automatically nominated for entrance scholarships in Asia Pacific Studies, and these nominations have been very successful. Many domestic students have also obtained Dr. David Chu travel awards for summer research in Asia. For more information on the Dr. David Chu scholarships, please click here.
