These high school students will be with the host family for two semesters beginning in August, 2017. They have earned their scholarships in a competitive process. They must maintain a "B" average in their host high school, complete 30 hours of volunteer service, and join a leadership club or activity. They receive a monthly stipend for spending money and some funds for school-related expenses. They come with full health coverage.
Host families must provide three meals per day, a place to sleep, a place to study, a comfortable home environment, and transportation to and from school and school activities (school bus is fine). Host families must be US citizens and English needs to be the primary language used in the home. Who can host? Couples with or without children, singles, and empty-nesters. Who to contact? James, local coordinator, American Councils for International Education. American Councils places ONLY State Department Scholarship winners.
