J-1 Exchange Visitor Scholars

We value the opportunity to collaborate with scientists and innovators from around the world.  

The purpose of the J‐1 Exchange Visitor Program is to foster the mutual exchange of ideas between Americans and foreign nationals and to stimulate international collaborative teaching and research efforts. The exchange of research scholars and professors promotes interchange, mutual enrichment and linkages between research and educational institutions in the United States and those of other countries. The respective hosting department will be the point of contact for J-1 Scholars to provide assistance during their time at Michigan Tech. International Program and Services (IPS) will support the department during their stay. J-1 scholars should call, email, write to, or visit their host department for questions about official procedures.
