FLEX will offer scholarships to secondary school students from Turkmenistan for the 2019-2020 academic years.  Scholarship recipients will be provided with round-trip travel from their home to the United States and back, as well as an allowance for living expenses.

Scholarship recipients will learn about the United States firsthand by participating in family life, school study and extracurricular activities.  Program participants will also participate in activities in their local communities or areas, and will also have the opportunity to share their own culture with others.

Recipients of FLEX scholarships are selected by an independent panel of experienced educators in the United States on the basis of merit demonstrated in application materials.   Merit is determined by evaluating the written application, recommendations, English language proficiency and an applicant’s demonstrated preparedness for a year-long exchange experience.

This program is open to all high school students who meet requirements of the program including students with disabilities.  More than 300 disabled students have already studied in the U.S. on this program.
