We are thrilled to announce the release of the EurekaFacts Intern and Trainee Report.
The report found that the Intern and Trainee programs positively impact the United States by strengthening our national security and supporting our economy. Not only did 75% of participants in 2017 develop a more positive view of the American people, they also contributed over a half billion dollars to the U.S. economy during their stay.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget released today by the Administration proposes a steep 75 percent cut to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). Specifically, the FY19 request of $159 million is a significant reduction from ECA’s actual budget of $634.1 million in FY17. Last year, the Administration recommended a 55 percent cut to ECA. Although a long-term FY18 budget has not been finalized, Congress recognized the importance of ECA and increased its funding for FY17.
