The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)

The IVLP Program is the U.S. Government’s premier professional exchange program that provides firsthand knowledge about U.S. society, culture, and politics, while cultivating lasting relationships. By connecting current and emerging foreign leaders with their American counterparts, IVLP fosters lasting relationships and helps strengthen U.S. engagement with countries around the world. The program duration is usually three weeks and involves travel to Washington, DC and several cities. There is no application for the IVLP. Participants are nominated by the staff at U.S. Embassies around the world and project topics are tied to key U.S. foreign policy priorities.
