Grant Description

The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for cooperative agreements for the FY 2016 Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program Placement Components. The Yes program advances the U.S. foreign policy goals of engaging youth populations and building civil society by providing physical exchanges and building lasting ties between high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations and the people of the United States. The YES pogram will provide scholarships for international high school students to live in American society for an academic year and attend a U.S. high school. In turn, these students will expose U.S. citizens to the culture, traditions, and lifestyles of people in their home countries.
