YES Abroad

The Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Abroad Program, sponsored by the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, offers American high school students and recent graduates full scholarships to study for an academic year in countries with significant Muslim populations. Living with a host family and attending a local school, YES Abroad students have the opportunity to promote mutual understanding between the US and the host country by forming lasting relationships with the local community. 

Applications for the 2020-2021 programs are expected to be out soon. Applicants must be 15 to 18.5 years old at the start of the program and be enrolled in high school at the time of application.
