West Valley City's Division of Arts and Culture & the Sister City Committee are partnering with the Sister City of Nantou, Taiwan to sponsor a student exchange in the summer of 2015. Students will go to Nantou in June after the school year ends, for a two week trip. In exchange, Nantou students will come to Utah around the third week of July. Twelve students from each country will be selected for this great opportunity. During the exchange, the students will be housed with families of students from each exchange. Students will experience and learn about the culture and history of each area visited.
You must be 16 years old by June 2015.
We welcome applications from all over Utah, however preference will be given to West Valley City residents.
Families will be expected to pay a portion of the cost of the trip, but all students are encouraged to apply regardless of their ability to pay, as scholarships are available. The total cost per student will be approximately $1500.
Applications are due by December 15, 2014.
