YFU Awards $1.6 Million in Study Abroad Scholarships Annually
Education happens inside and outside of the classroom. When your students study abroad, they gain a better understanding of why people act and think the way they do. When an exchange student is welcomed into your classroom, your students learn about a whole new culture, in a whole new way. They learn that there’s more to the story than what they watch on the news and read in their books. Help your students make the world their home and introduce them to global opportunities.
Do you know a student who would be a great candidate for a YFU program?
What students get out of a global exchange is unique to them. They may:
- Discover and develop personal strengths
- Gain a new global perspective
- Increase proficiency in another language
- Meet remarkable people and build lifelong friendships
- Learn how to interact with people from different backgrounds
- Qualify for preferred college admissions
- Enhance global career opportunities
- Help to combat stereotypes and enhance appreciation of diversity through exposure to "in-person" narratives.
