Service ServiceEndowed Chair/Division

Endowed Chairs/Divisions are funded by donations from companies in hope of enriching research and education activities at the university. Endowed Chairs/Divisions can be established in all fields of studies from engineering to cultural, social, and natural sciences.

In the Endowed Chair/Division program, visiting professors and other teaching staff are invited from outside the university to perform research and education activities. Their salaries, research expenses, and travel expenses are all covered by the donations. The period for holding the Endowed Chair/Division is usually 2-5 years and its renewal can also be discussed.

How to Apply

The procedure to apply for founding the Endowed Chair/Division is the same as that of donations. After our internal review, a permission from the president may be issued. The donor can also include its name in the title of the Endowed Chair/Division if desired.
