Organised by NTU-University Scholars Programme and supported by Temasek Foundation, the STEP Youth Regional Affairs Dialogue 2020 will be a platform for university students in Asia to enhance their leadership skills and broaden their understanding of geopolitics. 

Aspiring youth leaders will have an opportunity to develop an appreciation of Asia’s interwoven geopolitical structure through discussions on economics, politics and society and foster an understanding of governance and policies across Asia as they build friendships through cross-cultural exchanges.

The 9-day programme will be held from 23 - 31 July 2020 at the NTU campus. Applications will begin in January 2020 and selected students will be informed of their offers by May 2020.
