Korea-America Student Conference


The 14th annual Korea-America Student Conference will be held in the United States and South Korea. The Conference will consist of a three-week Summer Virtual Programming that will be held five days a week from July 11th, 2021 to July 31st, 2021 for four hours a day. The In-Person Conference portion will take place in Seoul, South Korea and San Francisco, California, from December 27th, 2021 to January 8th, 2022.

The theme of the upcoming conference is “People to People: Building our Present and Future through Intercultural Lenses”. The Virtual Conference will consist of virtual presentations from experts from various fields of academia, business, and politics. There will also be full delegation discussions and small group RoundTable discussions.

During the Summer Virtual Conference portion, delegates will convene over Zoom for a variety of academic and cultural experiences. Over the course of three full weeks, delegates will have the unique opportunity to engage in academic, cultural, and professional exchange with professionals, scholars, and experts from both South Korea and the United States. They will participate in lectures, seminars, roundtable discussions, networking events, and cultural activities alongside their peers. For the In-Person Conference portion, delegates will first travel to Seoul to experience several cultural exchange activities. They will then travel to San Francisco for the culmination of our conference, the Final Forum.

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.
