Webster International Friendship Program applications are due Aug. 29.

Webster University invites you to become a part of the International Friendship Program. The program fosters relationships across cultures, pairing international students with community members to experience life in the United States and advance awareness of global perspectives.

The Webster International Friendship provides an opportunity for international students to connect beyond the Webster University campus and helps them better understand our community. Participation gives both the students and community members an opportunity to learn about other cultures, have stimulating conversations, and make new friends.

The program goals include:
  • Community members will learn about different cultures by developing rich personal relationships with Webster University international students.
  • Webster international students will be provided with an opportunity to experience American life firsthand and to participate more fully in community activities.
  • Community members and international students will have the opportunity to gain new perspectives by exchanging ideas and customs.

Through this informal program, international students will be matched with members from the local community and enjoy interactions to promote the open exchange of cultural experiences, customs and ideas. Community members enjoy the satisfaction of making a significant contribution to the success of the international students’ time in the U.S.

Complete your application by August 29

We will host a kickoff program on Sept. 12 from 6-8 p.m. at the University Center Sunnen Lounge for students and community friends to meet and begin the program.
