EducationUSA Campus Hosting Opportunities

Campus visits provide advisers with first-hand knowledge of U.S. colleges and universities and can help them speak to their students about life on a U.S. campus in a concrete way using real examples.

The EducationUSA network’s success depends on advisers' access to current information and skills-based training. Visits also help U.S. institutions raise their profile internationally and can help them highlight specific programs and services for international students.

Call for Campus Hosts:  Pre/Post Conference Campus Visits

In 2020, there will be opportunities to host EducationUSA Advisers for approximately 2-4 days either before or after the following conferences. Groups of advisers will usually be between 4-8 people. Campuses may also request to host more than eight or less than four.

An ideal proposal would include meetings with international students, a mock admissions panel to review international student applications and a visit(s) to a nearby school(s), if possible an institution of a different type e.g. community college, minority serving, liberal arts etc.

Eligibility

Applicants should be accredited U.S. post-secondary educational institutions (non-profit or for-profit), U.S. higher education associations, university systems, consortia, or qualified entities that meet provisions in IRS section 26 USC 501 (c) (3). 

Costs

Please note host institutions are required to cover adviser costs for lodging, meals, and local transportation, including travel to/from the campus for arrival and departures. This includes transportation on travel days to/from the airport as needed.  International airfare is provided by the U.S. Department of State.
