We will post information on applying in August, but if you would like to learn more about the program before then, we will blog daily about our program activities while in Cambodia June 20 - July 12. The blog link will be posted on our website by the start of the program orientation in Missoula, June 16.
The Mansfield Center is honored to host a program of the U.S. Department of State, the Economic Empowerment Exchange Program for Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. This program specifically seeks out participants who seek to be empowered with concrete skills they can use to generate economic growth, with the objective to increase incomes and reduce poverty in their respective countries through access to more economic opportunities.
In our program, 20 southeast Asians and 20 Americans will travel in four cohorts from April 2013 - January 2014. Southeast Asian participants will engage in a 37-day program in the U.S., while U.S. participants will travel overseas for an average 16-day program.
