– Participants are required to:

– have a good command of the English language, a strong academic record, and be outgoing and flexible

– be full-time students at accredited universities/colleges

– display a strong determination to return to Bulgaria at the conclusion of the program during the visa interview

– must have an arranged job offer, before their arrival in the USA

Bulgarian citizens who study abroad could also participate in the W&T program if they manage to find an organization which provides the respective service for foreign students.

Correspondent students – as well as those attending vocational/distance learning schools and secondary schools for adults – do not qualify for the Summer Work & Travel program.

There are no formal age restrictions for participants, however, applicants who are not of normal student age (18- 28) will receive greater scrutiny.
