Application Open! United States Embassy Youth Council Nepal 2021/2022

by Public Health Update


The United States Embassy Youth Council (USYC) is now accepting applications for the 2021-22 cohort. The deadline for submitting the application is 11:59 PM (GMT +5:45), September 21, 2021.

The U.S. Mission designed the USYC as a professional development and mentoring program to assist the council members in developing leadership skills to solve critical issues in their communities. Throughout the duration of their membership term, council members participate in networking opportunities, work on community engagement projects, and attend important strategic events. The U.S. Embassy Kathmandu has a cooperative agreement with We Inspire Nepal (WIN), a youth-led social change non-profit organization, to manage the USYC program.

Every year, approximately fifty-five individuals, between 20-30 years old, are accepted to the Council. We strongly encourage as many people to apply as possible for this upcoming cohort. Priority will be given to applicants from marginalized and underrepresented communities in Nepal.


a. Nepalese citizens between the ages of 20-30 years old. 

b. Students, professionals, opinion leaders, and activists willing to make a difference..

c. Applicants willing to commit to active involvement in the Council for one year. We
understand that people have professional, academic, and personal commitments; full
participation in the program will demand a degree of active engagement outside of your
regular and ongoing activities.

d. Applicants from LGBTQI+, Dalit, religious, and/or ethnic minority communities.

Selection Methods

After the initial round of applications closes, the U.S. Embassy and WIN will recommend the strongest candidates to proceed to the second phase. During this phase, applicants will be requested to provide additional information on their strengths, suitability for the program, and achievements. Finally, a panel will select the top 50-55 applicants to be the members of the USYC for the 2021-22 cohort.
