Sponsored by POSCO TJ Park Foundation, the Fellowship was created in 2009 to commemorate contributions made by the late founder and CEO of POSCO, TJ Park, to the development of science and technology in Korea. Since then, it has supported outstanding early-career scientists working at domestic universities and research institutes in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, life sciences, steel, materials engineering, and energy materials.
