Now accepting applications for the 69th JASC!


We are happy to announce that applications are open for the 69th Japan-America Student Conference (JASC)!

The 69th JASC in Japan

The 69th JASC will take place from August 3-28, 2017 in four regions in Japan. Students from all fields of study are welcome to apply. No Japanese language or Asian studies background is required; we are seeking a diverse delegation that shares a strong passion in furthering US-Japan relations and international friendships.

Initiated in 1934, JASC has a history of over 80 years with a host of distinguished alumni, including former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Japanese Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, and former President of Nissan Corporation Yutaka Katayama.


By being part of a talented group of 72 delegates from Japan and the U.S, participants will:

  • represent their university and country in a multidimensional dialogue about US-Japan relations
  • delve into critical topics ranging from global and regional security to minorities and social advocacy;
  • learn firsthand from panels with established leaders in business, government and academia;
  • Partake in educational site visits and cultural activities as the delegation travels to four distinct regions across Japan;
  • build professional networks through networking receptions; and
  • forge lifelong friendships across the Pacific.

JASC competitively selects 72 delegates from Japan and the U.S. who have a strong interest in U.S.-Japan issues. The 2017 conference will convene in Japan.
