Japan-America Student Conference


The 72nd Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) will bring together up to 72 Japanese and American students of diverse backgrounds and perspectives to discuss both the historical significance, as well as the future of U.S.-Japan relations. In light of COVID-19, the 72nd JASC will convene virtually from August 5-17, 2020 and then in-person in Honolulu, Hawaii from January 2-8, 2021.

The historical Conference provides Delegates with opportunities for professional, personal, and academic growth, as they work to develop lasting connections and lifelong friendships. Accepted student Delegates will join Roundtables to discuss topics from their unique student perspective, with the support of the 72nd JASC Executive Committee. Roundtables are comprised of Delegates from each country, to encourage cross-cultural exchange and diversity in opinions and experiences.
