Finalists in the competition will have the opportunity to live with an American family and study in an American high school during the 2017-2018 school year.
The FLEX program pays for all travel, housing and living expenses for program participants with all funding generously provided by the Government of the United States of America. FLEX testing is open to all high school students who meet the requirements of the program including students with disabilities. More than 220 disabled students have participated in FLEX over the program’s history, including 4 from Turkmenistan.
The next FLEX testing cycle for the 2018-2019 school year will likely begin in October of 2017, after the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan provides permission for the program. Students, teachers, and parents should check our website or call our office in August of 2017 for details on testing dates, student eligibility requirements, and special testing opportunities for students with disabilities.
Best wishes to all the Finalists on their exchange year and good luck to applicants to the 2018-2019 cycle next Fall!
