International Exchange Programs

Roane State presently participates in two international student exchange programs.  CBYX , the Congress- Bundestag Youth Exchange (, not only provides scholarships for American students travelling to Germany, it sends German young professionals  to Roane State for a year of study and work experience. YFU, the Youth for Understanding program, brings English speaking college students from all over the world to East Tennessee for one and  two year stays for study and cultural immersion. All of the students in the exchange programs stay with host families. There is always a need for families  to volunteer to host a student and information about the programs and hosting can be obtained from the International Education Department Director or the Exchange Student Coordinator.
