Our Students


American Councils works exclusively with high school (ages 15-17) scholarship students. Alumni include heads of state, educators, entrepreneurs, and more. They are exemplary citizens of their countries and carry their positive experience of the U.S.—especially their host parent or family—throughout their lives. Learn more about some of our Featured Students below.

If you are looking for a passionate and considerate student who will take advantage of any opportunities presented to him, Lerious would be a great fit! He is committed to his studies and loves science in particular, hoping to become a medical doctor in the future. His favorite activity is participating in quiz bowl, which he loves because it helps him learn more. His teacher says he’s one of the best at the school!

Lerious relates well to his peers and, according to his teacher, has “good conduct and a humble spirit.” Due to his motivated nature and passion for education, Lerious is very excited to make the most of the exchange experience. He understands the importance of receiving a good education and creating a good future for himself. Lerious hopes the exchange experience will “improve my learning scale and ability” and “make my dreams come to pass.” 

Though he is a dedicated student, Lerious also understands the importance of physical activity and fun! He loves to play basketball and soccer with his friends in his free time. He also loves to swim! Doing activities with his friends is important to him because “it brings me and my friend happily together and we feel fine doing it together.” Lerious will certainly be a respectful and enthusiastic addition to your family!
