Any full- or part-time faculty or staff member is eligible to participate in the program, although some colleges have additional restrictions about whom they will sponsor (i.e. faculty only or full-time only). Check with your supervisor to determine if you are eligible. Each college determines who it will nominate for the program and the number of candidates it will support. The cost to sponsor a participant in the 2014-15 Netherlands Exchange is $1,200. Remaining costs are paid by the VCCS.

The Exchange Program with Sunyani Polytechnic in Ghana is under review. More information about that program, including possible applications, will be available in late April.

Please be as detailed as possible on your application, since this information is essential to find you a suitable counterpart. The professional objectives are the main criteria for finding you a match partner. However, factors such as age, gender and personal interests will also be taken into account.

Incomplete applications or applications without the accompanying materials will not be considered.

If you have further questions, you can consult the program FAQ online or contact Program Coordinator Maury Brown at or 540-423-9839.
