The Experiment Digital, formerly known as DYLEP, is a fully-funded eight-week virtual exchange program for high school students from the United States and the Middle East region.
Designed to connect students across the globe without leaving their living room, participants interact through videos, discussion forums, online chats, webinars, and playing games together. Through these activities, participants develop leadership and cross-cultural communications skills, speak with peers from different countries, and design youth-led projects to create positive social change. The exchange take place online, so students can participate from anywhere. We encourage students with diverse backgrounds to apply!
By participating in The Experiment Digital, students receive a Certificate of Completion in leadership and global issues analysis, access to the U.S. Department of State’s International Exchange Alumni network, unique project funding opportunities from the U.S. Department of State, and a $400 scholarship towards participation in one of The Experiment’s programs around the world.
The Experiment Digital, formerly known as DYLEP, is supported by the Stevens Initiative, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and is administered by the Aspen Institute. The Stevens Initiative is also supported by the Bezos Family Foundation and the governments of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.
