Becoming a Sponsor is easier than you think!
The first step is to become acquainted with what your role as a sponsor would be, as well as familiarizing yourself with what is expected from our sponsors. Read through the sponsor guidelines if you haven't done so yet.
Once you've decided that you'd like to become a sponsor, fill out the application form below. The application will ask for personal information, such as name, phone number, email, etc. It will also ask for basic family information, to help with matching you with an officer, as well as your own sponsorship preferences (for example, a specific country). Finally, we ask that you initial next to some of our most basic sponsorship guidelines, to ensure that all of our sponsors understand what we expect of them.
There are multiple ways to submit the application form- you can fill it out electronically or by hand, and email the finished application to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax it to (202) 685-3722, or you can mail it to Katherine Martin, 300 5th Ave Bldg 62 Rm 154, Fort McNair, Washington, DC 20319. Emailing is the fastest option. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

You will receive a confirmation email upon receipt of your application form. Our next class of officer's will start indicating if they would like to participate in the Sponsorship Program in either late April or Early May. Once preferences start rolling in, our office will reach out to you again via email, and we will start the matching process. Once a match is made, you will receive contact information for the Officer you will be sponsoring, and you should reach out as soon as possible.
All New Sponsors will attend a mandatory orientation session, held after regular work hours, to prepare them for the Sponsorship Program. Previous Sponsors are highly encouraged to attend a Sponsorship Workshop Session. We also strongly encourage all Sponsors to attend the "Meet and Greet Session" at NDU during the officer's first week in the U.S.
