Host an Inbound Global Scholar? What does that mean?

Being a host means looking out for the scholar as they plan to come to the U.S. and while they are here. Scholars live on, or off, campus at the University that they are studying with. Scholars are graduate students coming here to further their studies to gain a Master’s or Ph.D. here in the U.S. Some even come to the U.S. with their families!

As a host, you can help them navigate the area, connect with groups in the area and figure out how to do things while they are here like taking the bus to NY or visiting the Cape and New England. Being away from home can be tough and having a host family here for you can make a big difference.

In addition, scholars make GREAT speakers for your club! They all have very interesting stories and are inspirational speakers.

If you'd like to host a scholar this year, please contact AG Lori Becker at to be placed on our "Yes! I want to host" list.
