New U.S. High School Exchange Program Welcomes Mongolian Students
Ulaanbaatar, February 2, 2017 – The U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar is pleased to announce a new exchange program now open to Mongolian high school students. The Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) is an educational exchange program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, which provides scholarships for high school students to spend an academic year in the United States.
For the first year of this new program, 9-10 students will be identified in the spring to begin their exchange program in the United States in fall 2017. Details on application procedures will be available in late February.
As United States Ambassador Jennifer Zimdahl Galt noted in her remarks celebrating the 30th anniversary of U.S.-Mongolian diplomatic relations on January 27, “I am pleased to announce that beginning later this year Mongolia will join the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program, which brings top high school students from many countries to the United States for a year of study at U.S. high schools. We are thrilled to add Mongolia to this program during this 30th anniversary year.”
