Finalizing applications, interviews, and submiting fee

Once both applications are completed, contact us for a preliminary review and comments. Once both applications are finalized, submit the program fee, and request an interview with the intern and all the supervisors. At each interview, we will go over the agreement and training plan with the intern or supervisor and ask questions to ensure that all involved parties are aware of the rules, operational guidelines, and consent to the content of the training plan.


My application is accepted, what's next?

If accepted, we will sign Form DS-7002, issue Form DS-2019, and send the original to the intern via FedEx/UPS. We will also move on to the next stage, applying for a J-1 intern visa at US embassy or consulate that includes filling out Form DS-160, paying the SEVIS fee, scheduling and preparing for an interview appointment, and more.
