What is the status of Summer and Fall 2021 Programs?
- Fall and Summer 2021 programs are in the process of being finalized.
- AFS will offer many Full Year and Semester programs, but with reduced numbers. It is important that applicants secure spots early.
- AFS-USA is working with AFS-International to establish guiding principles for program decisions on summer programs.
- There are unique considerations for summer programs. Many programs are group-based programs without host family components, and there are fewer entry/visa requirements for short-term travel.
- The goal is to have summer program offerings finalized by the end of 2020.
- Program changes are likely to occur based on the development of the pandemic over the winter/spring months.
- Due to the impact of the pandemic and the repatriation of AFS participants, AFS-USA has limited national scholarships available during this period of recovery.
