The U.S. Embassy in Chisinau is pleased to announce the start of recruiting for the following 2017-2018 academic year exchange programs open to Moldovan citizens. All these programs are fully funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and are designed to foster democratization and the transition to market economies through intensive academic training and community service participation.

Participation in the exchange programs is merit-based, with selection made on the basis of slightly different criteria for each program. Applicants are evaluated on factors such as academic excellence, leadership potential, knowledge of English, fields of study or research, and preparedness for living in the United States and succeeding as exchange participants. The programs offer equal opportunities to all applicants and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national or ethnic origin, handicap or disability. Preference is given to those applicants without recent experience in the United States.
