The 2016 Taiwan Agricultural Youth Exchange Program is currently accepting applications from high school seniors or college freshmen who are passionate about agriculture and are interested in representing Kansas in a week-long exchange program in December 2016. Each year, a school in central Taiwan hosts students from the Midwest for this program. Selected students will tour agricultural facilities and businesses in Taiwan, and will learn about Taiwanese agriculture. The program will take place Dec. 5-10th. Three students will be selected to represent Kansas, and must meet the following requirements:
· Be a high school senior or college freshman;
· Be at least 18 years of age by the beginning of the trip;
· Have a strong Kansas agricultural background;
· Have a valid U.S. passport by time of exchange program selection; and
· Be able and willing to pay for airfare (approximately $1,400).
Applications must be submitted by October 14 for the student to be considered. Students interested in applying can find more information at agriculture.ks.gov
