Japan-America Student Conference

The Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) is a student-led exchange program, initiated in 1934 by university students concerned by the breakdown of bilateral relations prior to the Second World War. Today, an equal number of students from the U.S. and Japan are competitively selected each year to spend one summer month together, studying and analyzing Japan-U.S. relations while visiting four diverse regions in the host country.

Full time university students studying in the U.S. are eligible to apply as American delegates. No previous knowledge of the Japanese language is required.
