Nacel Open Door Scholarship Fund
Nacel Open Door, Inc. (NOD) is a nonprofit student exchange organization, dedicated to promoting international understanding and language education. NOD believes it is essential for young people to develop a deeper awareness of their role as citizens of the world through direct experience in other cultures and languages. The friendships that result from living as a member of a host family or attending school in another country encourage continued communication and understanding of other peoples.
As a nonprofit organization, Nacel Open Door is committed to providing accessible and affordable programs. Nacel Open Door Scholarships are an important part of NOD's long-standing desire to provide students the opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures, regardless of their financial means. Nacel Open Door relies on student fees as the primary funding for its programs, and the significant reduction in student numbers due to the COVID-19 pandemic has had substantial impact on program funding. NOD is especially hopeful for additional donations to its Nacel Open Door Scholarship Fund this year.
