A $1600 fully deductible contribution will pay for the expenses for one deserving young person’s homestay experience, BUT your contribution in any amount will help to build international understanding and good will.
AILI relies exclusively on the generous support of our community
and internatiunal partners to provide homestay scholarships
to deserving youth each year.
100% of donations are used to pay the costs of
homestay scholarship opportunities.
AILI initiated the scholarship program in 2008. Today, American International Learning Institute (AILI) annually provides full scholarships to 9-18 deserving teens per year for cultural homestays in the US, Europe, and Asia. These unique experiences foster international understanding, improve communication, and promote goodwill throughout the world.
The following International Organizations generously provide
homestays or campstays for our scholarship recipients:
Dipont (China) - 2 homestays per year
Calvin Thomas(France)- 2 homestays per year
Compass USA(USA)- 7-12 homestays per year
Indirizzo Inghilterra (Italy) - 1 homestay per year
Juventud y Cultura (Spain) - 2 campstays per year
Our international partners generously provide 100% of the three-week homestays and administrative services. In addition, it costs $1,600-$2,300
for airfare and insurance for each scholarship recipient.
Many thanks to the volunteer host families from Compass USA who generously donated their stipends to the AILI scholarship fund!
