Missoula International Friendship Program

The Missoula International Friendship Program (MIFP) promotes global awareness and friendship between international students at the University of Montana and the greater Missoula community.

MIFP arranges a semester-long or a year-long "friendship matches" between international students and local residents, called Community Friends. This program does not require home-stays. Community Friends and international students enjoy occasional get-togethers and learn about one another's culture while sharing leisure and family activities. 

MIFP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public organization.
