PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Embassy Kyiv, Public Affairs Office (PAS Kyiv) of the U.S. Department of State announces a limited competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to facilitate the participation of selected first-time Summer Work & Travel applicants in the 2022 season. Please follow all instructions below. Priority Region: Ukraine Program Objectives: The Ambassador's Fund for Summer Work and Travel (SWT) offers a unique opportunity to enable university students from Eastern Ukraine including students of universities displaced from the conflict with Russia to apply and participate in the Summer Work and Travel Program. Selected participants will have the chance to meet with diplomats from different sections of the Embassy, allowing them to learn about the United States and the bilateral relationship prior to their exchange- preparing them to represent their country and region in the United States and promote mission and department goals upon their return to their communities. Learning about the SWT program itself, participants will become advocates of the SWT program among their peers. Participants will have a better understanding of the United States and will be better able to form an independent opinion and understanding of American culture and values which will allow them to assess news and information about the United States through fresh eyes. Participants will likely return more confident and ready to participate more actively in their local communities. Upon their return, participants would be added to the USG alumni network, where the embassy offers ongoing support, programs, and networking opportunities to help alumni make positive contributions in their own communities.
