A message from the 17th Korea-America Executive Committee:

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in participating as a KASC 17 Delegate!

This year, we are excited to announce that KASC 17 will be held in-person in the beautiful cities of Seoul, New York City, and Washington DC. We are seeking to recruit a delegation of 24 students to participate in this academically enriching programming and cultural exchange between our nations.

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 17. It is expected that applicants have a genuine interest in full participation of the Conference, as we will dive in-depth on various global topics, embrace cultural differences, and develop our international networks. Additionally, since the Conference will be held in English, delegates should feel comfortable using English. Above all, the 17th KASC Executive Committee is looking for responsible, passionate, and collaborative applicants to represent South Korea and the USA!

Throughout the Conference, you can expect to hear from several key speakers, who are all well-respected experts in their fields. These talks, along with additional cultural activities, will provide a more diverse, intellectual Conference for delegates to learn from and draw on when discussing with their peers. At the end of the Conference, each Delegate will receive a Certificate of participation. With all of that being said, KASC is proud to offer the opportunity for participants to their improve leadership and interpersonal communication skills with peers and professionals of all different backgrounds.

We hope our delegation will make the most out of KASC 17. Until then, we will look forward to reading your applications!

Best Regards,

The 17th KASC Executive Committee
