Support for International Scholars and their Families
The MIT International Scholars Office (ISchO) assists MIT departments, laboratories, and centers in bringing international scholars to campus for a variety of purposes. The ISchO advises on immigration matters, and provides information and guidance on a wide range of issues including cultural activities, health insurance, English language resources, employment of spouses, taxes, and general information about 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 departments, laboratories, and centers.
International Students please consult the International Students Office website.
