About our programs

Institutions of higher education are invaluable to ISC programs. Each year, students from across the U.S., Japan, and Korea are competitively selected to represent their schools at the Korea-America Student Conference (KASC) or Japan-America Student Conference (JASC). Schools frequently support their students' participation through academic credit, scholarships, or grants.

If interested in hosting JASC or KASC, email jasc@iscdc.org or kasc@iscdc.org for more information.

Schools can become further involved by hosting KASC or JASC, as each month-long Conference convenes at four sites in the host country (which alternates each year—one year the Conference is hosted in the U.S., the next year, in the partner country). Not only students from the United States, but also international students have the unique opportunity to experience the academic resources and campus life of universities different from their own.

ISC is proud to have partnered with these U.S. schools, hosts of the student-led JASC and KASC.
