Korea-America Student Conference


The 12th annual KASC will be held in the United States and South Korea from July 9 - August 1, 2019. The theme of this upcoming conference is “Harmony in Complexity: Individual Voices in Diverse Global Dialogue”.

A delegation of 24 students will be competitively selected to represent the United States of America and the Republic of Korea in the 12th KASC. All delegates will be moving from South Korea to the United States in the spirit of keeping with the two-country model that facilitates cultural and academic exchange.

In South Korea, delegates will travel to Incheon for an academic experience and Seoul for a weekend cultural excursion. In the United States portion of the conference, they will travel to Los Angeles, California. Over the course of three full weeks, delegates will have the unique opportunity to engage in academic, cultural, and professional exchange in both countries. They will participate in lectures, seminars, roundtable discussions, networking events, and cultural activities alongside their peers.

Throughout the conference, delegates are to discuss, explore, and collaborate on several pressing bilateral and global topics with specific relevance to both the US and ROK. Delegates will then present their joint solutions to a panel of experts and the general public at the conclusion of the conference.

KASC seeks to achieve a diverse delegation, and all majors and academic levels are welcome to apply. The official language of the conference is English. No prior experience with Korean Studies or Korean language is necessary.
