Traveling to the United States during the Easter holidays, meeting new people, improving their English skills and gaining experience abroad – all of this is possible with the comprehensive “USA for You” scholarship. Germany’s oldest non-profit exchange organization, Bonn-based Experiment eV offers this scholarship program in partnership with the US Embassy. The offer is aimed at pupils in secondary, secondary and global schools in North Rhine-Westphalia and is intended to reach young people who have hitherto been under-represented in exchange programs. With the implementation of the program, the association wants to allow as many young people as possible to experience an intercultural exchange and guarantee greater educational equity.
15 young people have the option of a full scholarship for a two-week stay in the US during the Easter holidays, April 10-24, 2022. They live with host families, support a charity project, participate in an English language course and an exciting part of the leisure program. The cost of the flight and the program will be covered by the scholarship. The group is accompanied by two volunteers from Experiment eV.
Applicants must be interested in intercultural exchange and volunteering and must be between the ages of 15 and 17 at the time of departure on 10 April 2022. The application deadline is 1 December 2021.
