D6110 Youth Exchange has a limited ability to provide matching grant monies to approved candidates. That program requires the District to provide 1/3 of the STEP flat fee cost, the sponsoring club may (or may not) agree to provide 1/3 of the STEP flat fee cost and the student or his/her parents to provide the remaining amount of the fSTEP flat fee. Applicants must be approved by the local club as being both "in need" and "well qualified" to be considered for a grant from the district Matching Grants Program.  The matching grant does NOT cover additional expenses, such as airfare.
