The 65th JASC adjourned on August 24th, 2013 and 72 student delegates (excluding the 16 executive committee members which will participate in the 66th conference) have now become alumni. Many alumni of the conference have gone on to distinguish themselves in business, academia, and government. Most notable among them is Kiichi Miyazawa, the former Prime Minister of Japan, who participated in the 1939 and 1940 Conferences, and Henry Kissinger, the former U.S. Secretary of State, who participated in the 1951 Conference.

ISC provides several services for alumni including, arranging events and reunions, circulating a quarterly newsletter, posting internship and job opportunities on the JASC Facebook Page, and arranging meetings with mentors upon request. The staff of ISC wishes all its young alumni the best and hopes they stay in touch as they go on to become leaders in their chosen fields.
