The MIT International Scholars Office (ISchO) assists MIT faculty and staff in bringing international scholars to campus for a variety of purposes. The ISchO advises on immigration matters, issues visa documents, and provides information and guidance on a wide range of issues such as employment of spouses, health insurance, taxes, language courses, and general information about MIT and the Cambridge/Boston area. Weekly orientation sessions for scholars and their families are held throughout the year.
Every year, over 2000 international scholars (visiting researchers, professors, and lecturers) and accompanying family members are affiliated with the MIT community. In 2011 - 2012, for example, this extraordinary group of individuals represented 90 different countries and engaged in research and teaching activities in 71 different MIT laboratories, centers, and departments.
