YES Abroad

About The YES Abroad Program:
"The Kennedy-Lugar YES Abroad program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is offering American high school students and recent graduates in the U.S. full scholarships for up to one academic year to live and study abroad in countries with significant Muslim populations." According to the YES Abroad website. http://www.yesprograms.org/yesabroad

This program allows people, like me, who could not afford to study abroad otherwise, to live in a foreign country for a year. It was started after 9-11 as a way to mend the lack of understanding between United States citizens and citizens of countries with significant Muslim populations. This program started as an inbound program, sending kids to the U.S. for a year and has expanded to allow kids from the U.S. to travel to the same countries that the YES (inbound) kids come from.
