Away from the borders and coasts, Kansas City-area students are often surprised to find just how many international academic and professional opportunities await them after high school. This unique college and career fair will bring together dozens of international businesses, organizations, and colleges and universities to show students just how global their future can be.

Booths set up in Union Station’s Grand Plaza will include representatives from:

  • Businesses from a range of sectors, including agriculture, architecture and design, engineering, finance, hospitality, law, medicine, sports, technology, travel and transportation, and veterinary science;
  • Colleges and universities, including internationally oriented majors, clubs, and student groups;
  • Ethnic and cultural groups represented in the Kansas City area;
  • Government agencies;
  • Kansas City-based international NGOs;
  • Performing and visual arts groups and museums with global connections; and
  • Study-abroad programs

School groups will arrive as early as 9 a.m. and may leave as late as 3 p.m.; school groups will be asked to sign up for an arrival time and may stay up to three hours. Presentations from global professionals will be offered throughout the day, and students will be encouraged to practice their interview skills by interacting with booth representatives as they browse the opportunities offered.

The program will be underwritten by support from the participating organizations and generous Kansas City-area donors to ensure that attendance is completely cost-free for teachers and students. A bus reimbursement of up to $200/school will be available after the event upon submission of a receipt. Lunch will not be provided for school groups as part of the event, but there are numerous options in the area for purchasing lunch or sitting together as a group with packed lunches.
