Naming Opportunities

International House makes a lasting impression on many of the people who walk through its doors. Now is your chance to support the House and leave your mark. You can do this in any of the following ways.

Named Scholarships

I-House impacts the world by producing global citizens equipped with stellar leadership skills and intercultural expertise.  Fulfilling our mission includes providing financial aid scholarships to deserving students from diverse national and socioeconomic backgrounds who otherwise would be unable to afford room and board and would miss out on the I-House experience.

Engraved plaques will be placed on a patio bench outside the International House Café, in the Heller courtyard in the center of I-House, on the Jewell patio in the back garden, or on a table of your choice in the I-House Library. Each sponsored bench or table will be a visible part of the House for years to come.  

*Please note that due to the current restoration work underway at I-House, we are unable to accept new bench dedications at this time, but will resume doing so within a few months.

Name your room with a dedication on a plaque mounted outside the resident room doorway, and on the Donor Wall, mounted near the International House Café.

Additional Naming Opportunities

Wolf and Arlene Homburger

The late Wolf and Arlene Homburger, one of over one thousand couples who met at I-House and later married, shared their lives for fifty years and a love of family, the arts, and the mission of I-House.

Arlene and Wolf Homburger

Their generous philanthropic support made important safety upgrades possible throughout the I-House building. In recognition, the House is honored to have dedicated the Arlene Levinson Homburger Terrace and room 760, Wolf's former room.
