Interested applicants, families, and educators can register to receive updates about the NSLI-Y application by submitting a name and email address into the “Receive NSLI-Y Application Updates!” section on the right-hand panel of this page.

There is a single application for three U.S. Department of State programs: NSLI-Y, Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Abroad, and Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Abroad. Applicants interested in applying for more than one of these programs now only need to prepare one application. In this common application, applicants will indicate which programs they wish to apply for. Applicants may apply and potentially be selected for more than one program but will only be able to accept one scholarship award.  Learn more about the three programs here.
