Does anyone have experience with obtaining the Ministry of Justice Letter required for Fulbright Korea participants of Korean heritage? Trying to work through the process but the KAEC instructions are vague and my consulate is slow. For background - my local ROK consulate confirmed I do not have Korean citizenship (born to an American father before 1998), but the finalist acceptance docs state that a ROK Ministry of Justice letter proving non-citizenship is required. Thanks!

As most of us know, the Fulbright Program announced on 21 April 2020 that the 2020-21 cohort would be truncated and in some case cancelled – Indonesia and Israel has already cancelled its entire ETA cohort, with Turkey following by announcing a severely curtailed schedule. Meanwhile, Japan and India have announced they will defer the program into 2021, allowing for the full 10 month program to go forward – this despite Fulbright Central's refusal to accommodate such requests for finalists to other countries. We are assembling a data package to send to the Fulbright Commission explaining the impact of this instability, inconsistency, and the lack of a clear, logical response (for example, like every other institution on earth, simply moving online until travel could resume on a country by country basis. 

Finalists are invited to respond to a survey on the impact of this action. There is also a free-writing space to add any thoughts you may have. Anonymised results will be sent in aggregate to Fulbright Commission. Here's the link: https://bit.ly/358z8oC
