Furthering international understanding and cultural awareness
The InterExchange Foundation supports young Americans with a passion for improving the world. Established in 2007, the Foundation provides grants to young Americans who wish to participate in meaningful projects abroad and to share their experiences in order to further international understanding and promote cultural awareness.
Uta Christianson, founder of the InterExchange Foundation, felt that exposure to living and working abroad should be part of everyone's personal education. Her mantra was "Go abroad now. Make a difference!"
