The Future Leaders Exchange Program: Host Family and School Placement and Monitoring
Page 2

The program is only limited to students, aged 14-16 years old, attending secondary schools from the Eurasian countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Ukraine.

The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the ECA is the program's designated Exchange Visitor Program (J-visa) sponsor, thus it possesses great control over the administration of the FLEX program. However, the office plans to solicit proposals from third-party organizations that are willing to assist them in the process of administering the program.

As a result, the ECA will enter into cooperative agreements with eligible organizations and will award funds amounting to $8,500,000 to support the implementation of the The Future Leaders Exchange Program.

Interested organizations that wish to become third-party sponsors of the FLEX program will be eligible to submit an application if they are any of the following:

a) Public and State Controlled Institutions of Higher Education

b) Nonprofit organizations

c) Private Institutions of Higher Education

The Department of State, the mother agency that is funding the Future Leaders Exchange program, is the country's leading agency that is responsible for the creation of a more secure, prosperous and democratic world for the benefit of the American people and the entire international community.
