Rolling Admissions for the 8th Korea-America Student Conference
The Korea-America Student Conference is an intensive academic and cultural exchange program launched in 2008 to build closer ties between young leaders in both countries. Each year, fifty students from the U.S. and Korea are competitively selected to spend one summer month together, studying and analyzing global and bilateral issues in the US-Korea relationship through roundtable discussions, lectures, seminars, workshops and field trips. At the end of the conference, students will present their joint creative solution to one of these topics to a panel of expert judges, and the general public.
As alumni, students will join the ranks of distinguished ISC individuals such as former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Japanese Prime Minister Kiichii Miyazawa, and other leaders in academia, the government, and the private sector.
The conference this year will take place in the US from July 1 – July 31, 2015. The topics we will be focusing on include:
International Relations: Defining New Power Structures and Economic Approaches for a Stronger US-ROK Alliance
Social Justice and Immigration: Fostering Diversity and Multiculturalism
Advanced Technology and Society: Ethics of Technology and Its Impact on Human Life
Business and Communication: Strategizing to Compete in a Fluctuating Economy
Environment and Global Cooperation: Aspirational Leap for the Future Generations
