  • If the exchange visitor will be receiving financial support from sources other than Stevens, a US or foreign government sponsorship letters, personal bank statement, letter of support from employer, school, or foundation/organization providing support showing proof of sufficient funds to cover extension period. ALL DOCUMENTS INCLUDING BANK STATEMENT(S) MUST BE IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
