Share Your America With an Exchange Student

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE) is looking for families to host boys and girls ages 15-18 arriving in the fall to attend community high schools, as participants in U.S. Department of State cultural exchange programs.

Americans are among the most generous people in the world, and a popular way of making positive impacts is to host a foreign high school exchange student. ASSE invites families to be a part of history by helping to shape the future leaders of countries such as Germany, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Morocco, and many more.

These scholarship students are selected through rigorous competition, proving their drive to succeed. Trained evaluators carefully choose students based on their ability to adapt and thrive in a new culture for a year. Each year, tens of thousands of top students compete for one of approximately 2,000 spots in the CBYX, FLEX, and YES programs.

Whether you are a young family, retired, a single parent or empty nesters and interested in bringing a part of the world into your home, hosting one of these youngsters is an extraordinary opportunity to learn firsthand about their countries. Simultaneously, you can teach them about the United States and your community's values.

Department of State Scholarship Students have pocket money from personal or scholarship funds and they are covered by accident and illness insurance. They also give back to their American communities through volunteering and community service.  

The students are grateful to you and the USA for giving them the opportunity to live with your family and in your community for a school year. ASSE is honored to have been awarded these prestigious grants and our goal is to help each student’s dream come true.

To become a host family for one of these extraordinary young scholarship recipients, please call Amy at (800) 736-1760, email [email protected] / [email protected] or go to to begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter into your family today.
