Daniel Berdichevsky is the founder and executive Director of the World Scholar’s Cup which has a mission to bring together a diverse global community of scholars and leaders, to encourage students to discover and practice new strengths and skills, and to celebrate alpacas.
The first World Scholar’s Cup took place in Korea in 2007: a small regional tournament hosted at the Hankuk Academy of Foreign Studies. The first “global” round followed a few weeks later, bringing together students from Korea, Singapore, and the United States. Now it has grown to reach tens of thousands of students in dozens of countries.
