Invitation to Apply for High-school Exchange Program FLEX 2019-2020

 

The Embassy of the United States in Lithuania and American Council for International Education are pleased to invite students to participate in the FLEX program.  This exchange program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and seeks to bring bright and talented Lithuanian high school students (from 9th and 10th grades) to live with an American host family and study in an American high school for the 2019-20 academic year.

Application deadline: October 16, 2018.

What is the FLEX program?

The FLEX program was created by the United States Congress in 1992. It established a year-long, fully funded exchange program for secondary school students to travel to the United States for a year. The goal of the program is to promote mutual understanding between citizens of the United States and countries in the region, as students learn more about the U.S. and teach Americans about their countries. Each scholarship recipient will live for one year as a member of a U.S. host family and study in an American high school.

Secondary school students with disabilities are invited to participate in the competition. The participation requirements are expanded for students with disabilities. Please contact lithuania@americancouncils.eu to learn more.
