Overview and metadata sections
The Friends of the International Center are a volunteer organization who serve the international community at Princeton University by offering English conversation programs to foreign graduate students and their families, as well as a host family program to ease cultural transition. The group also awards an annual scholarship stipend of 1000 dollars to the foreign graduate student who has demonstrated excellence in the teaching of undergraduates. The antecedent to the Friends of the International Center was an organization formed in the early 1960s known as the International Student Hospitality Committee of Princeton (ISHCOP), later named the Princeton Friends of Foreign Students (PFFS). When the University opened the International Center in 1974, the PFFS became the volunteer wing, and renamed itself the Friends of the International Center.
Consists of the meeting minutes and correspondence of the Friends of the International Center. The collection also includes flyers, posters, mailings, and one audio recording of an interview.
