In honor of 20 years of impact, help our Alumni raise $20K to support AFS-USA's diversity scholarship initiative, Faces of America.
Studying abroad can change your life. That's why AFS-USA's Faces of America (FoA) program works to help students from diverse backgrounds realize their study abroad dreams.
The benefits of stepping outside your routine and exploring another part of the world are unparalleled. Just ask Samantha, who discovered a life beyond her anxiety through studying abroad in Germany through FoA; or John, whose FoA experience in Costa Rica ignited a passion for Global Health that put his life on a new trajectory.
Both John and Samantha would not have been able to go abroad without the full scholarships they received through the Faces of America program, which annually provides approximately 150 high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds with opportunities to explore the world. Now they, along with fellow Alumni Nersa, Christina and Sarah, want YOUR help to provide more deserving students with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
20 Years of Impact
In 2015, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of FoA. That's 20 years of adventure, inclusion, and life-changing impact as demonstrated through the inspiring achievements of our Alumni. And in honor of this milestone, our team of Alumni fundraisers hopes to raise $20,000 for FoA scholarships that will directly benefit students who otherwise could not afford to go abroad.
