Host an International Student through FIUTS at UW

Memo to SEAPAX members, from FIUTS Director Era Schrepfer
RPCV Dominican Republic 96-98

The Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS) is a community nonprofit at the University of Washington with more than 58 years experience enhancing international exchange and global understanding through friendship.

More than 800 new international students from over 150 countries will join the University of Washington this fall, and many of them would love an opportunity to learn about American culture from a host family. Welcoming a new international student to Seattle is a perfect way for RPCVs to foster international goodwill here at home.

Most FIUTS homestays last one week, and hosts come in many different forms, including families, single individuals, couples, and international student alumni.
