Green Card Lottery DV-2025
Deadline ends in:
Our USA scholars Marlene, Emilia, and Nils are settling into their host families as the final applications for The American Dream scholarships for the 2024/2025 school year roll in at our partner Partnership International.
There is a lot to do for our new high school students. We are happy to receive the first photos and stories from the USA!
Emilia's host family in New York State is an absolute lucky find. She spends a lot of time with her host mother, Anita, and her second host student, Marta, from Italy. Movie nights with popcorn have already become a cherished routine.
When Emilia arrived at the airport, not only Anita and Marta showed up, but also her host grandma! In addition, there was a delicious, typical American cake as a welcome!
With this lovely welcome, the initial uncertainties and the efforts of the long flight were immediately forgotten!
Although high school wasn't officially supposed to start for Emilia until six days after her arrival in New York, she naturally wanted to get started right away. So, the day after her arrival, she was already at school selecting her courses for the coming semester.
Choices included a mix of required subjects such as American history, English, and math, but she could also pick out her own electives. She chose cooking classes and the school choir.
Emilia immediately got into contact with her classmates, as their interest in her origin and culture was enormous. And when the “tryouts” start again in November, she will take the chance to get into cheerleading and tennis finally.
USA fans between the ages of 15 and 17 still have time until Sept. 30th, 2023 to apply for one of three The American Dream scholarships for a high school year in the US!
Above all, our applicants should be real USA fans, volunteer in their spare time, and have a love of storytelling, so they can regularly report on their adventures in the USA.
We are keeping our fingers crossed for all applicants for The American Dream Scholarship 2024/2025!
