ASSE Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Spain. All these exceptional students have received scholarships through a partnership with the Amancio Ortega Foundation in Spain. The Foundation’s goal is to bring Spanish scholarship students to the USA. The Foundation carefully screens and selects 100 students who have passed the high academic qualifications as well as being financial need based to provide a full scholarship for them to study in the USA for one academic year.

The students come from all over Spain and are chosen as ambassadors of Spain to learn and grow from their year abroad in the USA, in order to come home to Spain and apply what they have learned to their home town, community and country. These students would not have this opportunity if not for this generous Foundation in Spain. ASSE is proud to be a part of this prestigious program, and know that our host families and schools will appreciate these students and their hard work ethic and desire to grow and learn from their American families and schools.

ASSE is currently seeking host families for these well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from all areas of Spain. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, the Spanish scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills. Upon returning home in the spring, the students will share what they have learned while in America and will make a significant difference in their country!
