Our model for student-run Conferences began in 1934, yet every Conference is innovative and new. And the mission of our organization is more relevant than ever: to promote peace through mutual understanding, friendship, and trust.

The remarkable sponsorship that sustains our programs is possible in large part to the generosity of alumni, corporate partners, and foundations. Our supporters believe deeply in the importance developing knowledgeable, creative, and compassionate leaders in the U.S., Korea, and Japan.

We are especially grateful to the following organizations for their vision and generosity in supporting our programs:

Academy for Korea Policy Outreach

Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund

The Freeman Foundation

Japan-US Friendship Commission

J.C.C. Fund

Korea Foundation

Marubeni America Corporation

Mitsui USA Foundation


Saskawa Peace Foundation USA


U.S. Department of State

U.S. Embassy, Republic of Korea
