The UTK Center for International Education (CIE) is hosting a group of 20 undergraduates from Argentina. The students arrived in Knoxville on Friday, January 5, and will be on campus through February 24—the program coincides with the summer vacation period in Argentina. The students are in their third and fourth-year as undergraduates at various universities in Argentina. While on campus, the group will be attending selected classes related to their academic majors, and participate in community service and leadership development activities.
The students are sponsored by the U.S.- Argentina Fulbright Commission in Buenos Aires. They were selected through a highly competitive process, and are among a group of 280 of high participating in similar programs at 15 campuses in the U.S.
Many of the students intend to pursue graduate degrees after completing their undergraduate studies in Argentina.
CIE’s Office of International Partnerships and Exchanges and English Language Institute (ELI) are responsible for the program. Questions may be directed to Jim Hamrick at ELI,by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 865 974 3404.
