Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for High School Students
Calling all U.S. High School Students! Did you know you can study abroad with a U.S. Department of State scholarship?
More than a dozen American alumni of U.S. government-sponsored international exchange programs greeted a group of visitors from the Middle East and North Africa on the last stop of their International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).
Less than 10% of U.S. students study abroad, and very few of these students are in high school. Yet, studying abroad early builds global competencies such as language and cross-cultural skills, maturity, and clarity about one's post-secondary education and career. Learn how to help high school students achieve their dreams of studying abroad.
Every year, the State Department brings almost 2,000 high school students from almost 50 countries to live with an American host family and go to high school for a year.
