Host families sought for Spanish scholarship winners

Print Article

ASSE Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Spain. All these exceptional students have received scholarships through a partnership with the Amancio Ortega Foundation in Spain.

The foundation’s goal is to bring Spanish scholarship students to the United States. The foundation carefully screens and selects 100 students who have passed the high academic qualifications, as well as meeting financial need-based requirements, to provide a full scholarship for them to study in the United States for one academic year.

The students come from all over Spain, and are chosen as ambassadors of Spain to learn and grow from their year abroad, in order to come home to Spain and apply what they have learned to their hometown, community and country.

ASSE is proud to be a part of this prestigious program, and know that our host families and schools will appreciate these students and their hard work ethic and desire to grow and learn from their American families and schools.

ASSE is currently seeking host families for these well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from all areas of Spain. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, the Spanish scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.

To become a host family or find out more about ASSE and the prestigious Spanish Scholarship Program, call (800) 733-2773, go online at www.ASSEhosts.com or email asseusawest@asse.com.

Founded by the Swedish National Department of Education, ASSE International (formerly American Scandinavian Student Exchange) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, public benefit organization. ASSE is officially designated as an exchange visitor program by the United States Department of State and cooperates with the Canadian Provincial Ministries of Education.
