International Exchange Program Now Open for 2019 Applications


Imagine being involved in rice harvesting in Thailand, experiencing advances in dairy farming in Switzerland, cattle ranching in Argentina, or opportunities in more than 15 other countries. An experience with IFYE can bring you this and more. The IFYE Association of the USA, Inc. is now accepting applications for its 2019 international exchange programs.

The initial application is available on the IFYE Association website. It takes less than 30 minutes to complete and submit. The IFYE National Program Director will then follow up with you to begin your international experience. Look under the Foreign Exchange tab for USA Outbound Participation Application to get started. Those who complete the written applications will be interviewed for the limited number of 2019 international exchange opportunities.
