We have a great network of EducationUSA advisors around the world who can help you with specific questions about study abroad and scholarships. I do recommend that you visit your local center in the Gambia: http://www.educationusa.info/educational-system-of-the-gambia.html
If you're looking for the average American high school public education (or maybe even private schooling) my family and I are hosting a Lebanese student for 10 months (school year) through the organization, Ayusa. I'm not positive if this is similar to other exchange/hosting programs; we were able to select a student from a list of students whose Profiles were displayed online. There were background checks and the usual, but the process, I felt, really ensured she would be the best fit for our family.
Also, she's a part of the YES program (which she applied to at the same time as Ayusa) so I am pretty sure everything- her travel, tuition, participation in Ayusa alumni activities, day-trips here- was free.
Hi Mala! I know some Cambodian students who studied with me in summer for two months, if you want to get any scholarship you should follow what kind of Scholarships available for you on the official site of U.S. Embassy in Cambodia! This is more detailed source to find scholarship! And my advise is, it's time to act, don't think about past anymore, just do it! Be active!
Be first, be smart or cheat!!!
American exchange programs are great.I have never thought i can live without my family even for a week but here i am 9 weeks of no father or mother.........am going to spend a whole year in the United states with my American host family.My first shock was American food because it was totaly different from mine.I have made thousand of friends from so many countries through my exchange program Kennedy Lugar youth exchange and study program.
Thanks for sharing Aisha. What kinds of American food have you tried? What makes the food so different from home?
