Everything is there. The program was started by Eisenhower in the early
60's. Pres. Eisenhower believed that the best way to world peace was for
people to get to know each other - more familiarity, less fear. He saw
the sense of *not* making it a gov't program and instead put in the
private sector. His daughter (or granddaughter?) is still very much
involved with it today. Each student has to raise her/his own funds
(approx. $4k) to make the trip. The delegation leaders' expenses are
covered (travel, room, board), leaving only out of pocket purchases.
P2P has delegations going to Europe (5-7 countries), Australia/New
Zealand, and the British Isles. Getting involved is as simple as
applying, having an interview, and packing your bags!
