Do you belong to a minority? Or do you, in one way or another, support the diversity of Switzerland? Then apply to YFU Switzerland and spend a high-school year in the USA with a grant of 3,800 Swiss francs!

This year, the US-American embassy, in cooperation with YFU (Youth For Understanding), is awarding two special grants that celebrate the diversity of both countries. Different countries of origin, religions, linguistic groups – that’s what makes both Switzerland and the USA lively and interesting. The aim of the grant is to promote and encourage exchange between the cultures and between cultural or religious minorities.

How can I apply?
If you fulfil YFU’s general terms and conditions for applying, you already have everything you need to apply. Besides the normal application for the programme, the application procedure for the “Celebrating Diversity” grant comprises two additional steps. Find all the relevant information here.
