The K-L YES program is a high school exchange program sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs

The American Center at the US Embassy Dhaka has announced the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (K-L YES) Program for academic year 2020-21 for Bangladeshi students.

The K-L YES program is a high school exchange program sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, said the embassy on Thursday, reports UNB.

It is provided to Bangladeshi students by the International Education and Resource Network – Bangladesh (iEARN-BD), a non-profit organization, with the support of US Embassy Dhaka.

To be eligible for the K-L YES program, interested candidates must be a Bangladeshi citizen and not dual citizens or permanent residents of the US, or any other country; aged between 15 and 17 years on August 1, 2020; and be currently enrolled in grade 8-11 in any high school and/or college in Bangladesh.

The program enables exemplary Bangladeshi high school students from grades eight through 11 to spend one academic year at an American high school.

Its purpose is to provide promising high school students with a deeper understanding of the United States, while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.

The K-L YES Program began in Bangladesh in 2004, and since then, 420 Bangladeshi students have successfully participated.

Many YES participants have been recognized for their community service activities in the United States and the YES alumni association in Bangladesh is actively engaged in several community programs.

The program application is online and the interested students can apply at the iEARN-BD website: http://www.iearnbd.org/.

The deadline for submission of completed applications to iEARN-BD website is Sunday (November 23).
