"Before I left for Germany it was hard to accept, but now I am okay with it," says Jan. Another Wellesley High School student, Lily McRae, chose to spend one semester of her sophomore year as an AFS student and therefore will be able to graduate with her class. She chose France for her January to July adventure due to fond memories from her visit with her dad when she was eleven years old. Lily heard about AFS during WHS' Seminar Day, but, unlike Jan, Lily had to con- vince her parents to let her experience life in another country. Whether high schools students or recent graduates choose to participate in AFS for a summer, semester, or school year and whether they choose to live in a country in Africa, Asia, or Europe, they can be assured of a life-changing experience that fosters under- standing and tolerance among world citizens. Just think about the double benefits of mak- ing the world a better place while having the time of your life. Sounds as if it's an offer too good to pass up. 121 s u m m e r 2 0 1 5 | W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e US STATE DEPARTMENT-FUNDED EXCHANGE PROGRAMS n CONGRESS-BUNDESTAG YOUTH EXCHANGE (CBYX) – Scholarships annually for 57 German and 50 American students n KENNEDY-LUGAR YOUTH EXCHANGE AND STUDY (YES) – Scholarships annually for 40 students in countries with significant Muslim populations and 65 American students n FUTURE LEADER'S EXCHANGE (FLEX) – Scholarships annually for students from countries of the former Soviet Union to Study in the US n NEED AND MERIT-BASED country, region, and state-specific scholarships are also available
