Betty Grimwoood Thanksgiving Home Stay

Named to honor the person who initiated this program more than 50 years ago, the Betty Grimwood Thanksgiving Home Stay Program is an opportunity for international students to experience this very traditional American holiday either by staying with area host families for the entire Thanksgiving break or by joining them for the holiday dinner. Applications for 2019 will open in the fall.


The Thanksgiving Homestay application is now closed.
