“We are currently recruiting outstanding and motivated undergraduate and graduate students with strong leadership qualities to represent the U.S. as American delegates for the 2016 Korea-America Student Conference. We would like to invite you to recommend 2-3 students to apply for this opportunity.
Students will travel to Jeju, Busan, and Seoul, South Korea for three weeks and engage in professional, academic and cultural exchange with Korean delegates. Delegates will analyze and debate four global and bilateral roundtable topics, and present jointly crafted recommendations to these topics at the end of the conference. In addition, students will participate in lectures, networking events, seminars and service events designed to expand their international and cross-cultural awareness and professional skills. All majors are welcome, and previous knowledge of Korea or the Korean language is not required.
KASC provides a huge opportunity for students to grow personally and professionally through networking with peers, as well as industry leaders and experts. KASC is also unique in that it is a student-led conference, and is planned and administered by an Executive Committee of 8 student leaders from Korea and the United States, with the support of DC-based non-profit International Student Conferences.
Please see the attached poster and brochure for more information. Our priority deadline is November 9, 2015 and our regular deadline is December 1, 2015. Students applying for the priority deadline will receive priority consideration for their roundtable topic choice, a decision about their application status by the beginning of December, and a discount on the participation fee.
I would be happy to answer any questions regarding the program/application or connect with you and/or your students who are interested. You can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 561-900-4411.”
