Youth Exchange and Study (YES)

The Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program provides scholarships to high school students in many countries with significant Muslim populations so that they can study at an American high school and live with an American host family for one academic year. The scholarships are funded by the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Embassy administers the application process in Israel together with our implementing partner, the International Education and Resource Network (iEARN). For more information please visit this web page or email iEARN at Keep in mind that the annual application period is usually announced in September.
