Brazilians See Enough of OSU in a Single Day to Return for Graduate Studies

Three Brazilians are currently researching and studying in Columbus thanks to the outreach and global reach of The Ohio Program (TOP), housed under CFAES International Programs, under its new director, Dr. Luis Cañas.  US-based students may know TOP’s outbound program that allows them to intern internationally in the fields (often literally the fields) of horticulture, agriculture (dairy, swine, equine, crop production, machinery), oenology and turfgrass sciences in Australia, Denmark, France, The Netherlands, the UK or beyond for 3 to 12 months.  The TOP inbound program has brought students from over 100 countries to several US states for internships in private industry.  TOP gives volunteer companies in the US access and opportunity to engage with a diverse group of interns from major international universities, through career development funded by these companies’ support of the OSU mission to educate the world.  In short, these host companies give of their time and resources to make the world a better place by training the future of the agriculture industry.
