Become a YFU Study Abroad Volunteer Scholarship Evaluator

YFU, an intercultural exchange program, is seeking volunteers for our 2016 study abroad program activities. YFU offers more than 200 merit-based scholarships each year.  Our volunteers read and evaluate each student’s application- a series of essays and teacher recommendations- to help us select scholarship winners for study abroad programs. Scholarship evaluating is fun, easy and a great opportunity meet other internationally minded folks in the DC area.
