The 2020 Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) Program is now calling for applications from Vietnamese youngsters who will have the chance to take part in academic, exchange, and skill training activities at home and abroad, according to the U.S. Mission to Vietnam.

YSEALI is a short-term academic program whose purpose is to promote regional strategic goals, reduce barriers to communication among Southeast Asia's young generations, and strengthen cross-border partnerships with the U.S. youth.

The program is seeking Vietnamese talents aged 18-35, who are either undergraduates or postgraduates with outstanding leadership skills expressed in excellent academic performance and dynamic extracurricular activities.

Eligible candidates are those with proficiency in English and profound enthusiasm for social contributions at their universities or working institutions.

The program includes a virtual academic course and an integrated in-person experience approximately two to three weeks in length.

During the virtual module, selected candidates will participate remotely in useful activities including academic sessions, site visits, leadership development training, and cultural engagement.

In the event of better travel conditions in fall of 2022 or spring of 2023, candidates will be involved in a trip to the U.S. which provides socio-cultural activities and hands-on interactions with locals.

The deadline for application is November 5.

The U.S. Mission to Vietnam additionally provides opportunities for emerging leader seeds with the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative Professional Fellows Program (YSEALI PFP), an exchange program designed to enhance the bilateral relations between Southeast Asian and U.S. talented young leaders aged 25-35.

Participants are expected to develop their expertise and foster leadership capabilities during the program, in addition to experiencing discussions and seminars on global issues.

All costs including program administration, flight tickets, materials and allowances, housing and supplementary expenses will be sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
