LISS: Lithuanian International Student Services
In 2008, LAC began to sponsor the Lithuanian International Student Services (LISS) which assisted American and Canadian university students of Lithuanian heritage with short-term summer internships. In 2010, Birutė Bublys, former Director, signed an agreement with Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) to work together with LISS and provide educational and professional support, as well as grant all LISS university students 5 university credits for completing their internships.
LISS continues to fulfill its mission to aid university students of Lithuanian descent or have interest in Lithuania to work and refine their studies. LISS helps students enrich their lives, so that they can be an integral part of Lithuania’s future.
