Korean Scholar's Conference for Youth (KSCY)

  • Crimson Education
  • Yonsei University Global Campus, Korea


KSCY aims to empower undergraduates and high school students to develop meaningful social impacts. It encourages students to find simple solutions to improve their daily lives, and inspire them to add value to society by solving social problems on the global level.

The students gather to present their research, discuss ideas, and exchange feedbacks. They hope to expand a platform where young scholars can express their academic passion and approach scientific expertise.

At KSCY, there are various academic sessions ranging from social science to humanities, natural sciences, engineering, fusion and entrepreneurship, with an established professional mentoring group. It is a forum for young people to exchange ideas and develop their thoughts by presenting their own research, discussing them, and providing feedback from mentors.
