Van Andel Institute’s Exchange Visitor Program provides courses of study, lectures, and research opportunities in the various fields of research conducted by Van Andel Research Institute for qualified foreign research scholars, short-term scholars, and specialists. The classification of each individual’s status depends on the purpose of the exchange visit, how the stay will be funded, and the anticipated duration of the stay. The program promotes the general interest of international educational and cultural exchange.
The Exchange Visitor Program is administered by the Office of Exchange Coordination and Designation of the U.S. Department of State. Additional information about and regulations of the Exchange Visitor Program may be found at: http://j1visa.state.gov/.
