The US Embassy is pleased to announce the opening of the application for the Youth Exchange and Study(YES) Program for the 13th year in Israel. The program is seeking 20 Arab secondary school students, with Israeli citizenship, to participate in a Study-in-the-USA initiative for high school students during the 2017-2018 school year.
YES Program scholarships, funded by the US Department of State and Bureau of Cultural Affairs give secondary school students in many countries with significant Muslim population an opportunity to study at American high schools and live with American host families for one academic year. The 20 Israeli Arab students of the 12th batch are successfully engaged in academic activities in various States of USA. We are now looking forward for a similar talented group of youth for the 2017-2018 of the YES exchange program.
