Interested in Being a Host Family to an Exchange Student?

Host families come in all shapes and sizes, but they all share one thing in common - the excitement of bringing in an international student as another member of the family and attending their district public high school. Here are some typical questions:


  • Where do they come from? Over 60 countries and come fully insured, including a medical policy
  • How long do they stay? 5 month or 10-month programs
  • How old are they? 15-181/2 years old
  • Do they know English? Yes, they have all gone through an English proficiency test, are pre-screened, and have to apply for the programs. Many of them speak multiple languages!
  • What about the school? When the school agrees to accept the student, he/she will be treated like any other student, including counting in enrollment numbers.

Vincennes University is offering its CTE-Housing scholarship. Any student who took any class at McKenzie, at any time during high school, will be eligible for at least a partial housing scholarship provided they meet the required GPA.


Unlike years past, this year's scholarship does not include a meal plan, however, there is now a minimum award of $1,000 ($500 per semester for the first year). The minimum award was added because the scholarship is last dollar, and previous students, whose expenses were completely covered by other scholarships/grants, did not receive any financial benefit from the housing scholarship.
