The Office of Private Sector Exchange (BridgeUSA) of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the administration of the FY 2023 Ambassador Fund for Summer Work Travel (AFSWT).

The purpose of the BridgeUSA AFSWT Scholarship Program is to provide underserved foreign college and university students with opportunities to interact with U.S. citizens, experience U.S. culture while sharing their own cultures with Americans they meet, travel in the United States, and work in jobs that require minimal training and are seasonal or temporary to earn funds to help defray a portion of their expenses.

Goals

The mission of BridgeUSA provides opportunities for international candidates looking to travel and gain experience in the United States. The multifaceted programs enable foreign nationals to come to the United States to teach, study, conduct research, demonstrate special skills or receive on the job training for periods ranging from a few weeks to several years. BridgeUSA’s mission – to increase mutual understanding between Americans and people of other countries – remains vital to U.S. national security and building people-to-people connections around the world.

  • Promote mutual understanding and lasting partnerships between emerging leaders from foreign countries and the United States;
  • Provide opportunities for BridgeUSA participants to collaborate and share ideas, approaches, and strategies to develop solutions to pressing local and global challenges;
