Our inbound program brings to the US between 300 to 400 trainees from over 50 countries each year. The program lenght is currently 12 months. Management trainees can in somecases extend their stay up to total of 18 months. At the completion of the training you can have another 30 days as a grace period. During the grace period you are not allowed to receive any kind of compensation, that time is for travel only. You may not re-enter the USA during their grace period with your J-1 visa.
The outbound program prepares US agricultural students for internships in chosen countries abroad for up to 12 months. Students from outside of Ohio are also welcome to apply.
