International dialogue and the exchange of cultures, experiences, ideas and solutions is vital to the Mansfield Center's mission to develop globally-minded leaders of integrity. We work to provide a wide array of opportunities, including programs for youth, community members, professionals, and educators.
U.S. Department of State Exchanges
Each year, we partner with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State to host international exchange programs that draw on local expertise against the backdrop of the beautiful Montana landscape. Montana participants travel abroad on two-way exchanges.
Alumni of programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and hosted by the Mansfield Center also have access to the State Department's extensive International Exchange Alumni network.
Project Bridge is a year-long academic program for four selected Montana high school youth that culminates in a ten-day all-expense paid study tour of the Republic of Korea.
Climate Change in Vietnam is a well-established and highly praised study abroad program open to both university students and community members.
