Student Exchange Program
The Memphis in May International Festival Student Exchange Program provides selected students and a chaperone with an all-expense paid, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the culture of our honored country. Each year, students are selected based on communication skills, grades, and community service.
2017 Student Exchange Trip
A delegation of high school students and a chaperone will be selected to serve as Exchange Students for Memphis in May International Festival, and will have the opportunity to travel to Colombia during March 2017 (travel dates to be determined). Selected students and chaperone will stay with host families and will attend classes at a host high school. The Memphis in May International Festival funds the round-trip airfare for each student and coordinates all arrangements with the host country.
