Gift for Tomorrow / Cradle of Great Scientific Minds in the 21st Century Korea Institute for Advanced Study/We invite you to come on board with us in our journey to advance basic science in Korea.


Korea Institute for Advanced Study was founded on October 1996, with a strong commitment to the excellence in basic sciences, by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Korea. The mission of KIAS embraces training young scientists to generate knowledge in basic sciences, and the promotion of science and technology in Korea to a world-class level. By supporting KIAS, you can become a part of this important mission.

KIAS depends on a unique financial partnership between government funding and private donors to carry on its missions. Since its inception, KIAS has invested in the support of fundamental research in basic science (Mathematics, Physics, Computational Sciences), and has successfully secured its standing as a world class research institute. Now in its 13th year, we need your support more than ever to maintain our status as a leading global research institute in basic sciences. Your continuous interest and support will lay the seed for future science in Korea.
