U.S. State Department Scholarship programs seeking homes for exchange students

Thursday, March 12, 2020

ASSE Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Eurasia, Germany, and countries with significant Muslim population. All these exceptional students have received scholarships through the U.S. State Department-sponsored programs: Future Leaders Exchange Program Program, Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange Program and Kennedy Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program. These scholarship recipients will spend an academic year in the U.S. The historic US State Department programs seek to foster democracy and values inherent in a free market economy. Your support of these students and programs like this reinforces the United States’ commitment to education and opportunity throughout the world.

ASSE is currently seeking host families for these wellqualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from various parts of the world, including; Latvia, Ukraine, Poland, Egypt, Jordan, Ghana, and Germany. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, these scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.
