About the Host Family Scholarship Program
Cultural exchange programs are a powerful vehicle for personal development. The high school years are an important period of growth, and the experience of going on an exchange at this time can have a profound positive effect on a student’s life. Our goal is to bring this experience to as many exchange students as possible, however, this goal cannot be accomplished alone. It is made possible with the help of our passionate volunteer host families. Our Host Family Scholarship aims to thank host families for volunteering by providing a substantial discount for them to send their own children on an international exchange program.
