Are you an outstanding individual between 18 to 30 years old and have demonstrated leadership ability and a commitment to effecting positive change across the globe? We invite you to the 2019 University Scholars Leadership Symposium (USLS) to be held at the Istana Budaya or also known as the Palace of Culture in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. USLS will be a life-transforming experience for you. 

The Symposium is creatively planned to help you discover your hidden potential as well as actively engages you in learning experiences beyond the Conference rooms. The event will enable you to acquire robust confidence, goal-setting capabilities, self-reliance and independence, and sharpen your cutting edge, prerequisites for the next generation of 21st Century leaders. 

Since the inception of the 1st USLS in 2010, Humanitarian Affairs has partnered more than 500 of the World’s leading Universities, many are listed by The Times Higher Education World University Rankings or QS World University Rankings. Some of our Academic Partners include Harvard, Princeton, Yale, University of Cambridge, Oxford University, King’s College, London, University of Toronto, University of Melbourne, University of Tokyo, Seoul National University, Yonsei University, University of Hong Kong, National Taiwan University, National University of Singapore, Beijing University, among others. 

For many of these universities, sending delegates to the annual Symposium has become an integral part of their leadership development and life-skills training. Their participation in the Symposium has helped shaped and spurred their students’ communities in global mission. 

Held annually in a developing country in the Asia Pacific region, more than 7,000 emerging young leaders from more than 100 countries have undergone this life-changing experience. Upon completion of this one-week program, many delegates have gone back to their countries with new vision and passion to effect changes and to transform lives in their communities. 

We want to invite every outstanding young person who has the passion to be a global trial blazer to 2019 USLS. Remember, education is not just knowledge or expertise; it is also about attitudes and values that are abundantly meted out at the Symposium.​
