Understanding Program Sponsorship

The program sponsor, noted in Section #2 of the student's DS-2019, is the agency or educational institution that is responsible for coordinating the participant's J-1 program. This is not necessarily the same as the financial sponsor. Students who are not sponsored by KU will need to seek advice from their respective program sponsor.
