Happening now! | Tax Assistance Program
Tax season is quickly approaching, and Global Connections is providing assistance- free of charge! International students and scholars are assisted by trained volunteers by appointment. These appointments are usually held every year from early March through mid-April. We also offer Tax Workshops for Chinese and Indian students. Please refer to our program page for more information on scheduling an appointment.
We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the hosts, chefs, sponsors, and guests who made our 2018 Passport on a Plate: Home Edition Dinners possible! The dinners featured cuisine from Iran, Hong Kong, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Italy, Brazil, and Colombia, and raised over $7,000 for Global Connections’ programs and events.
