Given an oriented fiber bundle $M$ whose fiber is a connected, $m$-dimensional manifold, and a codimension $n$ foliation of $M$ which is transverse to the fibers of $M$ and all of whose leaves are compact, we will show that there is an upper bound on the orders of the holonomy groups of the leaves.
