ExCEL Abroad Launches For 2015-2016!
We are pleased to announce the launch of ExCEL Abroad, the outbound component of the successful ExCEL program, also adminstered by American Councils for International Education. This new youth exchange program will send American high school students to live in Vilnius for one academic year beginning in 2015-2016 in order to strengthen ties between the United States and Lithuania. American students will serve as cultural ambassadors while living with a Lithuanian host family and attending a Lithuanian high school.
This new program is possible due to the generosity of the Kazickas Family Foundation, who have awarded a three-year grant to the ExCEL program. Applications open on Monday, February 2, 2015 and will be due on Tuesday, March 3, 2015. For more information about the program, including full details on eligibility requirements and how to apply, please visit http://www.americancouncils.org/programs/excel-abroad-program.
