Foreign Exchange Program

Foreign Exchange Participant Fees

Outbound Participant Fee Process

Program participation fees are only a small part of the total cost of an IFYE exchange program.  The IFYE Alumni Association underwrites approximately 85% of the total costs.

Each applicant is required to submit a $100 non-refundable application fee at the time of the application completion.  

Following the acceptance of the application and the $100 non-refundable fee, the applicant will be contacted by the National Program Director to complete the application. The interview and selection process will follow.  Once completed, country assignments will be made and agreed upon. 

The following is the program fee schedule for 2020 programs. The total non-refundable Participant fee is $3,000.00 for the two-, three-, and six-month programs.


  • $100 initial application fee (due upon submission of application)
  • Upon selection, the remaining $2,900 program fee can be paid in full (by March 01, 2020) or a payment schedule can be arranged with the National Program Director.

Please note: The application process remains open until all slots are filled. Please contact Alan Lambert, IFYE National Program Director at 605-366-6107 or by email to learn about available openings/slots or with questions about the program.
