Visiting Scholar Services

The J-1 Exchange Visitor program is administered by the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and was created by the United States Congress as part of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. The purpose of this act “is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries using educational and cultural exchanges.”

Missouri S&T has hosted hundreds of visiting scholars over the years. These visitors have been essential to our successful research efforts, and they have enriched the academic environment of our campus. International Scholar Services is available to assist academic departments who wish to invite qualified visiting scholars to Missouri S&T.
