Applications are open for the 2021- 22 Exchange Program in USA – Fully Funded. The deadline for the 5 week long exchange program  is 5th May 2021 and is open to women from specific countries. The exchange program is called Spring 2022 TechWomen.

Launched in 2011, TechWomen is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and is managed by the Institute of International Education (IIE). TechWomen aims to empower, connect and support the next generation of women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by providing them access and opportunity to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and become role models for women and girls in their communities. TechWomen supports the United States’ global commitment toward advancing the rights and participation of women and girls around the world by enabling them to reach their full potential in the tech industry. TechWomen encourages people with diverse backgrounds and skills to apply, including individuals with disabilities.

During the five-week program, participants engage in project-based mentorships at leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, participate in professional development workshops and networking events, and travel to Washington, DC. for targeted meetings and special events to conclude the program.

The TechWomen program takes the health and safety of our 2022 Emerging Leaders, mentors and host company partners seriously, and are taking all necessary steps to ensure they can deliver both a safe and successful in-person program in the San Francisco Bay Area. Program details are subject to change based on the latest health regulations, guidelines and best practices.

IIE successfully implemented a 2020-2021 virtual program, adapting the core elements of the TechWomen program — professional mentorship, action planning, cultural exchange and more — into a virtual setting.
