At the start of the fall 2013 semester, Fontbonne University welcomed 13 students from Brazil who traveled to the U.S. to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in St. Louis. The group’s presence on campus was made possible through co-sponsorship between the International Institute of Education and the Brazilian government, which allowed STEM students to travel to select U.S. universities to continue their studies. The students will study at Fontbonne through December 2014.
Fontbonne is home to undergraduate and graduate students representing more than 27 countries. The university’s office of international affairs assists these students as they acclimate to life and academics in a new country, offering an initial orientation, an academic course geared toward international student success, and programs, events and opportunities to help them adjust and connect.Learn more about Fontbonne’s international program.
