Summer Program

SP2018LogoBigThe mission of the GRIPS Summer Program, first held in 2012, is to provide challenging and interesting activities that will enhance participants’ practical policy-making skills. Conceived as a way to approach complex policy issues from a multi- disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective, the GRIPS Summer Program offers activities that require participants to use pragmatic skills and a multiplicity of discipline-based knowledge in order to address various real-life policy issues. Currently, the Summer Program is organized around five major activity areas:


(1) Seminars, Symposiums, and Student Conference
(2) Skill Enhancing and Policy Workshops
(3) Research Tours & Field trips

(4) World Embassy Tour
(5) Sports, Entertainment, and Culture


The activities chosen in each area reflect the interests and talents of our students and has attracted widespread interest from domestic and international government agencies, NGOs, and private individuals and organizations. The Summer Program will run from the end of July through the beginning of September.


We invite you to join us this summer! Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn new things, meet interesting people, and make new discoveries. We look forward to your active participation.


The 7th GRIPS Student Conference will be held on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. This year’s theme is “Public Policy for Peace and Sustainable Growth“. For more information and registration, please check the conference website.
