FY 2019 Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program Placement Components: The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for cooperative agreements for the FY 2019 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, academic-year exchanges, and building lasting ties between foreign high school students and the communities that host them. The YES program will provide scholarships for international high school students to live in the United States for an academic year (a semester for Malaysian participants) 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. U.S. public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to identify host schools; vet, select, and monitor host families; and place and monitor a portion of the students participating in the YES program during the 2020-21 academic year.
