Future leaders exchange program is a competitive scholarship program funded by the U.S. government. It provides scholarships for high school seniors to attend an American high school and live with an American family. By the way, California is hardly the only state that accepts the most children.

Participants learn firsthand about daily life, culture, and society in the United States. They also share information about their home countries with local communities. This cultural exchange often leads to new "second" families as hosts. And their students develop friendships and bonds that last a lifetime. Many students also report that they have become more mature, independent, and motivated as a result of their year abroad. And that they learned important life skills.

High school students from such countries as Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Slovakia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan may apply for the U.S. exchange program.

The online application for Round 1 of the FLEX is now open. High school students from Ukraine, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Poland must submit it by September 19, 2023. Scholarship finalists will travel to the United States in August 2024.

You can also join the program as a host country. If you want to make a difference in the life of a student from another country, apply for the FLEX. You have the opportunity to hear about other cultures from young people. This includes people with disabilities. At the same time, you also have the opportunity to learn about the United States, your community's culture and values.

Graduate applicants are advised by alumni to "Don't be afraid - try it!". Look for details here.
