Welcome to CIEE's Future Leaders Exchange Web site!
The Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) is a scholarship program administered by the U.S. Department of State through funding from the Freedom Support Act. The program provides opportunities for high school students from Eurasia (former Soviet Union, including: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Krygyzstan) to spend a year in the United States, living with a family and attending an American high school. The program was created in 1992 out of former Senator Bill Bradley’s conviction that the best way to ensure long-lasting peace and understanding between the U.S. and Eurasia is to enable young people to learn about democracy firsthand through experiencing it.

This site is designed to provide valuable information, serve as a forum to share thoughts and ideas, and act as resource center for students, host families and local coordinators involved in the FLEX program. For more information about the FLEX program, visit the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs web site: http://exchanges.state.gov/education/citizens/students/
