International Programs Seeking Volunteers to Host Students
Each summer, students from around the world come to Syracuse University as Fulbright Scholars, and International Programs within the College of Professional Studies is seeking volunteers to host these Fulbright Scholars for a meal during their time in Central New York.
The Fulbright Scholars, hosted by International Programs within the College of Professional Studies, come to Syracuse University from Asia, Africa, Central America, South America and Eastern Europe, and while on campus they will be attending a four-week English for Graduate Studies program that will prepare them for full-time graduate study.
These students will be in Syracuse from July 18 through Aug. 12 before they embark on their graduate, Ph.D. or research programs at universities throughout the country. Fulbright Scholars are selected because of their exceptional leadership and skills, and during their program, they will receive further training that will help them tackle challenges in their home countries when they return.
These students would love to tell their intriguing backstories, and are eager to learn more about Syracuse, the local culture and life in the United States. Please help make them feel welcome in the community. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jackie Monsour, assistant director, international programs in the College of Professional Studies.
