Introducuing Youth For Understanding (YFU) – YFU is one of the world’s oldest, largest, and most respected international exchange organizations. Their site has a number of full and partial scholarship opportunities for students who want to live and study overseas.

Generally, applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 18, maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA for a year or semester program or 2.0 GPA for a summer program, and be in good health.
