This MoU establishes a regulatory framework that creates, for the youth of both countries, opportunities to travel, study, and train in the United States and Portugal.
The program creates 400 openings for training and study in private sector American organizations that participate in the Exchange Visitor Program, and to which young Portuguese may apply. The participant will benefit, in the United States, from internship and education opportunities in diverse areas with a maximum duration of 12 months.
Simultaneously, Portugal will offer to American university students or recent graduates the possibility of, during 12 months, the ability to travel, study, and train in our country.
