Student Conference on U.S. Affairs (SCUSA)

Are you interested in global issues and discussing the foreign and domestic policy challenges facing the U.S.? Would you like an all-expense paid trip to a prestigious undergraduate student conference at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York?

If you answered yes, then this is the perfect opportunity for you.

We are proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for the two students who will be sent to the 74th Annual Student Conference on U.S. Affairs (SCUSA 74) that will be running from November 1st through 4th.

SCUSA is an annual four-day conference hosted by the United States Military Academy. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate interaction and constructive discussion between civilian student delegates and West Point cadets in an effort to better understand the challenges the United States faces today. SCUSA delegates live in the barracks, attend panel discussions, hear from high-profile keynote speakers, and develop policy recommendations with other students from around the world.

This four-day conference focuses on over a dozen issues and puts participants on the forefront of national and international issues while exposing them to complex problems facing leaders today. The theme this year is Innovation and the Future of American Foreign Policy.

One student from each campus (CSB+SJU) will be chosen by a committee of McCarthy Center staff and faculty.
