#YouAreWelcomeHere is a social media and scholarship campaign designed to affirm that U.S. institutions are diverse, friendly, safe, and committed to student development. More than 400 participating institutions and organizations are communicating the message in statements, photos, videos, events, and other creative expressions that feature students, faculty, and staff. In 2019, more than 50 institutions offered #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarships for the first time, in order to make study in the U.S. possible for even more high-achieving students.

The university is so kind with its international students, and I am proud to be one of them.
