If you are a Montana high school teacher or student with interests in environmental issues or international affairs, you could be among 20 students and two teachers supported by the U.S. Department of State for an all-expenses-paid trip to Cambodia.

The State Department has renewed a $190,000 grant to the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at the University of Montana to implement the American Youth Leadership Program in Cambodia for 2014. 

Following the success of the 2013 program, AYLP Cambodia will focus on environmental issues and climate change, as well as leadership development and community service.

The funding also covers travel for 20 high school students ages 15 to 17 who are looking to experience another culture and learn about the environmental issues facing both Cambodia and Montana. Upon returning home, students will put their new knowledge and skills into action by spearheading service projects in their communities.

Applications for teachers are due Nov. 12, and student applications are due Nov. 15. 

More information and applications can be found online at or by calling project manager Kelsey Stamm at (406) 243-2838.
