제목: 2015 Young Generation Forum (YG Forum) to be held June 29 - July 2, 2015 in Seoul, Korea.


Dear AKCSE Chapter Presidents,

YG Committee of the AKCSE is pleased to announce the Call for Applications for 2015 Young Generation Forum (YG Forum) to be held June 29 - July 2, 2015 in Seoul, Korea. 

Each year, the YG Forum program, hosted by The Korea Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST, 한국과학기술단체총연합회), brings young Korean heritage students/researchers from all over the world. 120 young generation participants (including 45 from Korea) will have a valuable opportunity to meet together, share their experience/knowledge, and create a world-wide network. In this year, the AKCSE will send approx. 10 delegates from Canada to YG Forum. All travel/local expenses (including airfare*, accommodation, and meals) will be covered by KOFST. So, it would be appreciated if you could forward this call to your chapter and local community (including newspapers). 

This year, we are also sending applicants in the under-privileged (사회적약)category (ex. Adopted, single parent household, etc.). This category will be evaluated differently from regular applicants.

 

*Airfare will be reimbursed up to USD $1700 (East), USD $1400 (Central), USD $1100 (West) or actual fare, whichever is less. 

 

The below is the application information (also, please review the YG Forum Selection Guidelines attached). 

When you submit the application, you are acknowledging that you will participate in all YG Forum activities between the specified dates.
