Can International Students Participate in FoodWorks?

Non-U.S. citizens must have a valid U.S. visa status that allows for full-time study for the duration of the FoodWorks program to be eligible to participate in this program. (Note: U.S. lawful permanent residents are eligible to attend.)

International students in F-1 visa status who already have a valid Form I-20 from a U.S. academic institution (college or university) that they attend during the academic year may apply to the FoodWorks program if they meet the following requirements:

-They will maintain F-1 status and have an active SEVIS record with their U.S. academic institution while participating in the FoodWorks program (from start date through end date).

-They have consulted an international advisor at their U.S. academic institution and received confirmation that they are eligible to participate in the FoodWorks program.

International students in another visa status may contact International Student & Scholar Services to confirm whether they are eligible to participate.

Because FoodWorks offers a practicum experience and a non-qualified scholarship payment to each student, participants will need an appropriate authorization to receive it.  F-1 students will need authorization for Optional Practical Training (OPT) or, if eligible, Curricular Practical Training (CPT).  Please be aware that OPT and CPT must be directly related to a student’s major field of study.  Students who fail to obtain the necessary authorization prior to the start of FoodWorks will not be allowed to participate in the program.
