Announcement of 2021 Young Generation Forum (YGF 2021)


Dear AKCSE Members,


YG Committee of the AKCSE is pleased to announce the Call for Applications for 2020 Young Generation Forum (YG Forum) to be held July 5-July 10, 2021 in Seoul, S. Korea. 

Each year, the YG Forum program, hosted by The Korea Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST, 한국과학기술단체 총연합회), brings young Korean heritage students/researchers from all over the world. 100 young generation participants (including 40 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. 9 delegates from Canada to YG Forum. All travel/local expenses (including airfare*, accommodation – 5 nights, 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). 

However, if the COVID-19 situation persists, KOFST will review whether to hold online and offline on a regional basis.

This year, we are also sending applicants in the under-privileged (사회적 ) category. This category will be evaluated differently from regular applicants.


*Airfare will be reimbursed up to USD $1800 (East), USD $1500 (Central), USD $1200 (West) or actual fare, whichever is less. 


AKCSE will submit the selected applicants and the final approval will be done by KOFST. Moreover, the selected participants will need to fill the additional forms at


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