Learn about our students

STS Foundation partners with international agencies throughout Scandinavia, Europe Australia, New Zealand and China. STS Foundation students are carefully screened and selected.

Every student participates in thorough interview process and completes a comprehensive application. This process ensures each student meets, and in many cases exceeds, the Department of State regulations and STS Foundation qualifications. Local Coordinators work closely with host families helping to match them with a student with similar interests and personality.

We are proud to partner with the Department of State’s FLEX and Kennedy-Lugar YES programs by hosting students from former Soviet countries and countries with significant Muslim populations.
