Program 1

Japan-America Student Conference (JASC)

Each summer,
nearly 80 students from universities across Japan and the United States convene
to discuss some of the hottest topics facing the two nations. The program alternates host countries each
year giving students the rare opportunity to see places, whether at home or
abroad, and learn about their culture through the eyes of others.

 

From politics to pop culture and everything in
between, JASC offers motivated university students of all levels an outlet for
ambition, intellect, and cultural stimulation.

 

Not only do
conference participants learn about one of the world’s most strategic bilateral
alliances, they also have the opportunity to directly help reinforce the bonds
between countries by sharing knowledge and experiences(http://www.iscdc.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=88&Itemid=69) while making memories
and friendships with other future leaders.
