Traveling to the United States during the Easter holidays, meeting new people, improving their English skills, and gaining experience abroad – all possible through a full “USA for You” scholarship. Experiment EV, Germany’s oldest non-profit exchange company, offers this scholarship program in collaboration with the US Embassy in the forest. The offer is targeted at North Rhine-Westphalia secondary, secondary and comprehensive school students and aims to reach out to young people who have so far been under-represented in the exchange program. Through the implementation of the program, the association seeks to enable as many young people as possible to experience an intercultural exchange and ensure greater educational equality.
Fifteen young men and women have the opportunity to receive a full scholarship for a two-week stay in the United States during the Easter break from April 10 to 24, 2022. They stay with the host family, help with a charity project, attend an English language course and be part of an exciting leisure program. The cost of the flight and the program will be covered by the scholarship. Experiment eV has two volunteers with the group.
Applicants must be interested in intercultural exchanges and volunteer work and must be between 15 and 17 years of age at the time of departure on April 10, 2022. Application deadline is December 1, 2021 More information about the scholarship, link to the application and an information flyer for download is available at https://www.experiment-ev.de/ferienprogramme/stipendien. The person contacting the Experiment EV office is Eva Kirch (Tel. 0228 / 95722-38, email: [email protected]).
