As the holiday season gets into full swing, CCIP is showing its Christmas spirit with some exciting new developments for the upcoming 2017 program. The second student recruitment window will begin on January 1, and this year’s cohort is already taking shape as many new applicants and past alumni have come together to celebrate being part of the CCIP family.

The recruitment windows are a bonding time when former participants gather together. This year's events have included participants from every CCIP year back to 2008. What's even more impressive is that many applicants said they were referred to the program by former participants, showing that CCIP provides a strong bond among students and that the program offers a truly beneficial, unique experience.

Also this year, new partner schools will be participating. The program would like to welcome the University of Macau and Hong Kong Shue Yan University, both of which will add more diversity to the program.

The second recruitment window will be short and will end right before the Lunar New Year. Interested applicants are advised to act quickly and complete application submissions ahead of schedule. Contact the administration to be put in touch with former participants who can assist with the application process.

Happy holidays from the CCIP family.


The Cross Cultural Internship Program (CCIP) is a cultural exchange internship program that takes place in New York City every year. It is dedicated to fostering mutually beneficial East-West cultural exchange, targeting exchange visitors from Asia and the Pacific region.

CCIP provides exchange visitors and host organizations the opportunity to exchange insights, ideas, and experiences. Through the program, participants acquire practical knowledge and cultural experiences, and host organizations connect with the international community and stay abreast of trends in the global marketplace.

CCIP is organized by FUSIA Communications, one of the approximately 96 J-1 intern designated visa sponsors in the nation. FUSIA is responsible for the selection of interns as well as supporting and monitoring the¬m during the program.

CCIP is a structured, full-placement internship program. Since 2008, CCIP has provided internship opportunities to over 850 exchange visitors. In 2015, 71 students were selected out of 1050 applicants. They were matched to 20-plus host organizations of diverse disciplines including government district offices, law firms, publishing houses, media firms, advertising agencies, real estate agencies, and more.
