A Foreign Student's Guide to Study in the United States.
This booklet is intended as a guide to help foreign students who are studying in the United States. Opportunities for foreign students to study in the United States exist as never before, in every state, at all education levels, and in virtually every discipline and subject field. It is anticipated that the foreign student population in this country, currently numbering 286,000, will triple in the 1980s. The booklet begins with general information for the foreign student. Reference works providing information about U.S. colleges and universities and guides to financial planning and scholarship support are cited. The booklet then goes on to describe organizations and agencies which can provide students with general assistance and with assistance in particular fields of study. Also described are organizations administering foreign student exchange programs in the United States and foreign student services. The booklet concludes with a listing of U.S. embassies and other overseas posts, binational education foundations and commissions, and student counseling centers. (Author/RM)
