English Language Institute Seeking Volunteers to Host Students
The English Language Institute (ELI) is seeking volunteers to invite international students to share a meal in their homes at a convenient time between mid-July and the first week in August.
The students, hosted by the English Language Institute in University College, are Fulbright scholars from Asia, Africa, Central America, South America and Eastern Europe who will be attending a four-week program, English for Graduate Studies, to prepare them for full-time graduate study. They will be in Syracuse from July 16 through August 10 and will then join graduate, Ph.D. or research programs at universities throughout the U.S.
They were chosen for the scholarship program because of their exceptional leadership and skills. Their nations want them to receive further training so that they can return home and tackle challenges in their countries.
These students have few opportunities to interact with Americans in a relaxed setting, but they have intriguing stories to tell and a lively curiosity about Syracuse and the local culture. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jackie Monsour, coordinator, Admissions and Student Services at the ELI, at email@example.com.
