STUDENT BIOS

IRIS’s studentsĀ are all recruited through the U.S. State Department’s Youth Exchange & Study (YES) Program. This particular exchange program seeks out each country’s brightest students who exhibit intelligence, leadership and enthusiasm to share their culture and learn about the “real America” that isn’t shown in Hollywood films. All students are on scholarship, meaning that they are here based on merit. To learn more specifics about our program, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
