What is MATCH?

MATCH is a program designed to give current undergraduate international students at the University of Minnesota the opportunity to share their experiences at the U with students in their home country during school breaks (winter and summer).

MATCH students will select, contact, and visit two educational sites, including at least one high school and possibly one university or advising center during University breaks. MATCH participants will receive an honorarium (payment) for their time.

The MATCH program provides students with the opportunity to make contacts and network in their home countries, while sharing their experiences at the University of Minnesota and informing students about studying in the United States.

Who can be a part of MATCH?

Any current full-time international student at the University of Minnesota is eligible. Students that apply must maintain full-time student status through the semester following their site visits.

Students must also meet all requirements of the program and the Statement of Understanding.

Please note that due to the competitive process of the MATCH program and availability of funds, not all applications will be accepted.

Registration for the MATCH program is currently closed. Thank you for your interest, and we encourage you to apply in the future.
