International Students

coming to Albany Area

There are a great deal of services available to students in the Capital Region.  International students are very vulnerable and are considered at risk when coming to an area for the first time.  This page will be a resource page to assist those students with information and provide a venue for help in the event of a crisis situation or if the student is seeking assistance with challenges they face in everyday life.  We also want to provide other resources for students who will be attending local high schools and colleges, and to those students who are seeking qualified tutoring programs in SAT and TOEFL preparation.  We are also seeking qualified and capable businesses who assist with the admissions preparation process for International students coming to our region that we safely and happily refer our International students too.  Part of the regions venue for International students are the many clubs, community and civic organizations that can help provide translation and guidance to students.


Many colleges in the area provide a variety of scholarships, but many go undiscovered, especially for the growing numbers of International students coming from other countries, we would like to use this page to provide schools who offer scholarships to students from around the globe.


Although we are not in the business of homestay for students, we have great concerns for students who come from afar and settle in only to find out they are not a good fit with families they choose.  In the future, GTC hopes to develop a matching database of families who want to provide a friendly family atmosphere to college students from other countries.


The development of this program will cost a great deal and we will be dependent on finding available resources to cover the costs.


 国际学生在奥尔巴尼
在奥尔巴尼首府地区,有很多向学生开放的服务。国际学生属于弱势群体,并且,国际学生初次来到新地区是具有风险的。这个网页提供多种资源来向国际学生提供信息,并且在学生遇到危机情况时提供帮助。国际学生也可以在此寻找协助来解决日常生活中遇到的问题。我们也向希望在首府地区就读高中或大学的学生,或者寻求高质量SAT,托福培训的学生提供帮助。我们也征寻有能力,高质量的企业来协助我们为国际学生的到来而做的录取及准备工作。在奥尔巴尼当地,有很多俱乐部,协会,和政府组织���国际学生提供翻译和指导服务.
很多当地大学都提供多样的奖学金计划,但是这些计划往往不为人知,来自其他国家的国际学生犹甚。我们希望这个网页能给国际学生提供奖学金信息.
虽然我们不提供寄宿家庭服务,但是我们很关心那些远道而来,却对寄宿家庭不满意的学生。以后,GTC希望能够建立一个寄宿家庭数据库,来登记希望为来自其他国家的大学生提供温馨的家庭环境的寄宿家庭.
​ 这个项目的筹备将会花费很高,但我们会寻求可靠的资金来源。
