The U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna (UNVIE) invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to implement two exchange programs related to the peaceful uses of outer space: the first is a youth exchange program to promote U.S. leadership in outer space and build closer relationships between the United States and the peoples of participating countries. The youth exchange shall send up to 24 young leaders (ages 15-18 at the time of the program) and two chaperones from six countries (two youth from each country) to Washington, DC for space-themed programming and to the Advanced Space Academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Selection of the participants will be done in close collaboration with U.S. embassies in the participating countries. The program will highlight U.S. support for STE(A)M education and expose the participants to American culture through science and cultural exchange. The second exchange program aims to expose university students and young professionals to U.S. space policy and industry while also building a closer relationship between the participants and the United States. The exchange will send three emerging leaders (ages 19-35) to Washington, DC for space-themed programming and, if possible, to Adult Astronaut Training, also at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The selection of the participants will be done by the U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna from a global pool of applicants; names and countries of residence of the participants will be passed to the implementing partner during the period of performance of the award, after the selection process is concluded.
