CCIP’s new publication sharing the feedback and thoughts of past participants has blossomed into a large-scale initiative spreading alumni accolades that the program has received from its nearly ten years of operation.

“This was such a great opportunity. CCIP offered an incredible chance to learn outside of my comfort zone in a setting that reinforced the development of my professional skills,” Katherine, a former Nanyang Technological University student, described her CCIP experience in the newly released Testimonial Booklet. “It was a meaningful, enriching time.”

Besides the words of praise from past participants, the booklet also includes instructions on how to download informative CCIP documents and how to get in touch with the program organizer.
To access your own copy of the Testimonial Booklet, visit Alert the program organizer via Skype chat (fusia_18) if you would like to speak directly a former participant yourself.

“Such an experience was precious and beneficial to my future career development,” said Choco, a researcher who studied at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “I am glad that the alumni are still friends and meet again after the program to exchange information and help each other.”
The Testimonial Booklet’s release is in conjunction with a new round of CCIP student recruitment to begin on January 1.

CCIP’s 2017 program will take place during the summer in New York City and will offer approximately 74 internships in a variety of industries from creative firms and government offices to ad agencies and law firms. Visit for more information or contact the program organizer via Skype chat (fusia_18).


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 98 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.
