International students arrive at FVTC

August 22, 2013

From “International students arrive at FVTC” — GRAND CHUTE — Fox Valley Technical College’s Global Education & Services department welcomed nearly 180 international learners from close to 60 countries Wednesday for its 2013-14 academic year.

This is the highest number of international students ever in the department’s 23-year history at FVTC and represents more foreign learners than any other technical college in the state.

Most of these students visit FVTC to study agriculture, natural resources, information technology, and business-related programs to address immediate needs when returning to their homelands. This year’s group comes from Bangladesh, South Africa, Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, Turkey, Pakistan, El Salvador, Haiti, among others.

About 60 international students are participating on scholarship programs sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) or the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State.
