A message from the 16th Korea-America Executive Committee:

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in participating as a KASC 16 Delegate!

This year, we are excited to announce that KASC 16 will be held in-person in the beautiful cities of Seoul, South Korea, and Washington DC, USA. We will travel with about 30 participants, including Executive Committee members. An invaluable part of KASC is the incorporation of academically enriching programming and cultural exchange between Delegates.

Those who are full-time undergraduate and graduate students studying in the United States and/or the Republic of Korea are eligible to apply to KASC 16. It is expected for applicants  to have a genuine interest in the Conference, as we will turn our attention to various global topics, embrace cultural differences, and create global networks. Additionally, since the Conference will be in English, it is understood that all Delegates should feel comfortable using English to engage with the Delegation. The 16th KASC Executive Committee is looking for responsible, passionate, and collaborative applicants to represent Korea and the USA. With a strong Delegation, KASC intends to further its mission to develop the relationship between our two countries and improve our global society.

There will be many guest speakers  for us to hear from who are famous and well-respected in their fields. These talks, along with EC planned exercises, will serve to provide a more diverse, intellectual conference for delegates to learn from and draw on when working with their roundtable groups. When it comes to the conference on-ground, roundtables will be designated to each delegate and will have a presentation on the last day of our conference, known as KASC’s Final Forum. Of course, we will also have many friendship-building activities  and visit many sites in Seoul and Washington DC!

With all of that being said, KASC offers the opportunity for participants to improve leadership and interpersonal communication skills with peers of different backgrounds. Delegates will also be able to practice their professional skills and cultivate academic interests. Therefore, we hope our participants make the most out of this KASC 16 experience and form global friendship during the concert.

We look forward to reading your applications!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about KASC 16!

Best Regards,

The 16th KASC Executive Committee
