Education & Exchanges


Learn, exchange, grow, and serve. The U.S. Department of State offers many programs for non-U.S. citizens wishing to come to the U.S. for cultural, educational, or professional exchange. These programs are augmented by local opportunities in countries around that world that allow non-U.S. citizens to explore U.S. culture and the English language. Learn more about the opportunities offered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The U.S. Embassy proudly supports and promotes education, cultural programs, and exchanges between the United States and Malta. In Malta and Gozo, the U.S. Embassy hosts a variety of lectures, panel discussions, cultural presentations, and workshops on subjects of mutual benefit to Maltese and Americans alike.  The U.S. Government manages a wide range of U.S. government-sponsored academic and professional development exchanges programs for Maltese citizens, including the International Visitor Leadership Program Exchange (IVLP), the U.S.-Malta Fulbright Program, and the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellowship.

Contact U.S. Embassy, Valletta, by sending an e-mail to usembmalta@state.gov for information on the opportunities available to you.
