Host families have to complete a National Criminal Background check (each host parent). You can complete this by going on-line at and completing the form. All clearances must be completed at the time of application and in the Big 33 office before you can be considered as a Big 33 host family. Obtaining all clearances is at the expense of the host family. The cost is $13 per person. Along with that, you will need to submit a copy of your current driver’s license (each parent). Those copies can be faxed to Mel Santor at (717) 774-1749 or mailed to her at: Mel Santor, Big 33 Scholarship Foundation, 4750 Lindle Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17111.
