Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom visited American capital Washington D.C to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the George Washington University.
The University intends to provide between 40 to 50 student volunteers for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, who will be allocated roles in a variety of areas, including press services, medical support and language services.
In order to participate in the programme, students will have to complete an application sharing their interests, previous experience and relevant course work, to ensure the best candidates are selected for the opportunity during their undergraduate and graduate studies.
"The George Washington University has long enjoyed a special relationship with both the Republic of Korea and the Olympics," said Steven Knapp, President of the University.
"Our largest community of alumni outside the US resides in South Korea, and we have been sending cohorts of students to study the Olympics for more than two decades.
George Washington University sends students on a trip to the Summer and Winter Games every two years.
Students meet with organising executives, conduct on-site research, write term papers and study issues like transportation, media, marketing, event security and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
Lee, who is an alumnus of the university, gave a special lecture to some of the students.
"Pyeongchang 2018 volunteers will come from many different backgrounds and cultures," he said.
"I am confident that students from George Washington University will enjoy this special opportunity in Pyeongchang and bring their professionalism and passion to the Games.
"With only 16 days left until the one-year-to-go mark, I hope that that all the volunteers we select for the Games enjoy their experience with us to help create a Games for all.
"This exciting partnership with the Pyeongchang Organising Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will offer our students a unique opportunity to learn firsthand about how the Games are organised, while also experiencing the riches of Korean life and culture."
POCOG has signed an MoU with four additional international Universities who have campuses in Songdo and Incheon in South Korea.
The agreements were signed with the State University of New York (SUNY), Ghent University, George Mason University and the University of Utah.
Between 10 to 30 students from each will be selected and given the opportunity to work at the Games.
The main volunteer programme for the Games received 91,656 applications from 145 countries, for the 22,400 positions that will be available.
The recruitment process started in July 2016 and will end in April with interviews, followed by selection and then specific training to follow.
