Why Did They Come?

Differences in College Going Among Immigrants

 

Who

Nirmala Kannankutty, Senior Social Scientist/Senior Advisor, National Science Foundation

 

The foreign born in Science and Engineering are far more diverse than one might assume. Some arrive as children, others complete the college abroad, while yet others complete at least some advanced training in the United States. And place of education makes a difference. What is more, their reasons for coming can be surprising and change over time.
