International Ambassador Endowment
Helping international students successfully transition to Furman requires the support of the entire community. Donors will profoundly benefit both our international students and Furman’s reputation as a community for all. Through advising, programming, and room and board expenses for an additional week of orientation, plus through our international student host-family program, we will make clear that Furman’s welcome and support are as wide as our global reach.
Our commitment to belonging is reflected in our desire to support domestic-student peers to assist international students with language skills and cultural acclimation.
Our best student ambassadors will receive travel awards to visit our international students in their home countries. In addition, on-campus monthly programming focused on heritage awareness will prepare all students for the diverse world in which they will live and work, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the connections to each other and Furman.
