Next Generation Leaders Program

NBR is grateful to have the support and cooperation of the Korea Foundation on this program.

NextGen Leaders is an educational program designed for emerging and established policy leaders in the United States to visit the Republic of Korea (ROK), develop a rich understanding of U.S.-Korea policy issues, and form close and continuing ties with each other and the Korean policymaking community. The program aims to deepen U.S.-ROK ties through ongoing dialogue between current and future leaders across the policy field.
