Korea America Student Conference
The second annual Korea-America Student Conference (KASC) is set to begin this coming July 2009. We will be kicking off our opening ceremonies in Seoul and continuing on through three other regional sites in Korea.
Building on our successful Conference this summer, we are expanding our program to include a total of 50 students from both Korea and the United States. These students will have the opportunity to discuss their own research on bilateral and international issues, attend academic and business lectures by leaders in the field, and engage in intensive cross-cultural discussions while traveling and living as one group. Rotating yearly between host countries, this year's events will be held in the Republic of Korea.
University students of all schools and levels of education (Undergraduate and Graduate alike) will convene to discuss the most current issues, ranging from the environment to science and beyond. Not only do conference participants learn about one of the world’s strategic bilateral alliances, they also have the opportunity to directly help reinforce the bonds between countries by sharing knowledge and experiences while making memories and friendship with other future leaders.
Japan America Student Conference
Each summer, nearly 80 students from universities across Japan and the United States convene to discuss some of the hottest topics facing the two nations. The program alternates host countries each year giving students the rare opportunity to see places, whether at home or abroad, and learn about their culture through the eyes of others.
From politics to pop culture and everything in between, JASC offers motivated university students of all levels an outlet for ambition, intellect, and cultural stimulation.
Not only do conference participants learn about one of the world’s most strategic bilateral alliances, they also have the opportunity to directly help reinforce the bonds between countries by sharing knowledge and experiences while making memories and friendships with other future leaders.
