Among the many ways life is changing due to the pandemic is the impact on International Students in the USA. We have put together a program to assist students gain professional experience. Industry mentors from all over the USA and multiple industries have signed up to mentor students in delivering an industrial strength product, similar to an internship experience in a organization !
The opportunity for students and mentors is huge. There are over 1,000,000 international students impacted by this situation. We are collaborating with SEWA International USA, an organization that has done great work since 2003, in disaster relief, education and is currently supporting many activities in response to COVID-19.
