The priority deadline is November 9 for the 9th Korea-America Student Conference to be held in Busan, Seoul, and Jeju in South Korea this summer. Applicants for priority deadline will receive a discounted participation fee, early notification of their acceptance as one of 34 delegates nationwide in the U.S. and Korea, and priority consideration for their roundtable topic.
For more than 80 years, the top students from the United States and Asia have been leading three-week summer programs that combine cultural exchanges, dialogues with opinion leaders, and rigorous inquiry into global issues. Participants not only hone their leadership and public speaking skills, but also forge friendships that last a lifetime.
Details about our 2016 Japan and Korea programs are below. This opportunity is for bright, motivated and globally-minded undergraduate and graduate students for what one participant from this past summer described as “a wonderful, exhausting, and enriching experience.”
Join the next generation of Asia-Pacific leaders!
