Japan-America Student Conference 2015

The 67th Japan-America Student Conference

Deadline: December 31, 2014

The Center for Japanese Studies, in partnership with the Institute of East Asian Studies, grants full scholarships to the Japan-American Student Conference for Berkeley undergraduate and graduate students. Awards are open to any full-time student with an interest in Japan.

The Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) is a student-led exchange program, initiated in 1934 by university students concerned by the breakdown of bilateral relations prior to the Second World War. Today, an equal number of students from the U.S. and Japan are competitively selected each year to spend one summer month together, studying and analyzing Japan-U.S. relations while visiting four diverse regions in the host country. JASC alternates its host country every year, emphasizing the personal connections between two distinct cultures gathered together in one place.

The 67th JASC Conference will take place in Hiroshima, Shiman, Kyoto, and Tokyo, Japan from July 30 to August 23, 2015.
