Every August, the KGSP scholarship advising team welcomes all new students to their U.S-based academic programs with a series of arrival orientations: From airport pick-up to settling into new apartments, Advisors help students acclimate to their new surroundings. This is followed by a two-day KGSP Arrival Orientation, which provides extensive academic, social, cultural, financial, and logistical informational programming. Building off of the tools learned during July’s Pre-Departure Orientation, Arrival Orientations ensure that KGSP recipients have the tools necessary for success as they begin their academic pursuits in the U.S.
