PLEASE PROVIDE TWO CHARACTER REFERENCES (Name, email and telephone number of references and your relationship to them):

Please enter the name of each cadet you are actively sponsoring. If you are active with more than four, please list surplus names in the "additional information" field at the very end of this form.

Specific Cadet Request
IMPORTANT: If you request a specific cadet by name, if possible please contact the cadet and ask that he or she requests you specifically by name as well. Otherwise the cadet may be assigned to another family if the cadet's preferences don't match.

The following information about your family will solely be used to assist in the matching process. All answers are to be provided on a voluntary basis.

Indicate up to five things that you are interested in. Please refer to the Interest List for the interest code number. We will use these interests in the matching process. Place the corresponding numbers of your top five interests in the boxes below. For interests not listed, please indicate in the text field below.

To the extent you have any preferences, please indicate them below. We will attempt to match your requests as closely as possible. Please understand that matching is made with the cadet's preferences considered first, and the family's second.

Cadets will also be asked to state their preferences; to the extent they have any. If the cadet states no preferences, he/she will be matched according to the preferences of the sponsor family.

If you listed preferences above, please list them here by number in order of importance.


Please take a minute to review your information and allow the form to fully render. If you have difficulty submitting the form, please email the Webmaster .
