Signature Programs

The US-Korea NextGen Scholars Program is an initiative by CSIS Korea Chair and the USC Korean Studies Institute, with support from The Korea Foundation to help mentor the next generation of Korea specialists in the United States.

The US-Asia Grand Strategy Program identifies and mentors young scholars with rigorous and interesting research agendas related to security, Asia and US foreign policy.

Organized by KSI affiliated graduate students, this annual symposium aims to professionalize graduate students, nurture their scholarship, and create interdisciplinary networks of Ph.D. students working on research related to Korea, East Asia, and/or Asian diasporas.

Alternating venues between USC and Michigan, this exchange features undergraduate research presentations by USC KSI undergraduate fellows and students from the University of Michigan on Korean and Korean-American Studies topics.
