Are you an international student?
We are excited about your interest in MiddSTART! Please note that engaging in emplyment (including self-employment and some entrepreneurial activities) without proper authorization is considered a violation of F-1 student/J-1 Exchange Visitor status. While many entrepreneurial activities (such as research and business planning) are permissible, activities that directly result in income generation are not allowed without the proper authorization. Middlebury strongly advises all international students to seek independent legal counsel from an immigration attorney to avoid accidentally engaging in unlawful activities. Before continuing with your application, please contact International Student and Scholar Services at email@example.com to review work authorization guidelines and learn more about contacting legal counsel.
