The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication and International Programs are looking for families to provide students from the Middle East with a brief American “home stay” experience.

The students will be in Pullman as part of a Study of the United States Institute. The Study of the United States Institute, a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is designed to promote a better understanding of the U.S. abroad and to help develop future world leaders.

The institute at the Murrow College will focus on new media and journalism.While the students will be in Pullman for several weeks, the home stay is for only one night.

Kelsey Hawthorne, director of the International Center, said she is working to find families who can host the students on June 18 and 19.

To find out more about the home stay opportunity, contact Kelsey at Kelsey.hawthorne@wsu.edu.  Deadline to apply is June 14.
