The Cross Cultural Internship Program (CCIP) announces the completion of all on-campus sessions with only a small number of positions remaining. Interested students should contact the organizer via Skype chat (fusia_18) to check host availability, complete docs 1-11, and arrange a phone dialogue in place of attending an on-campus Info Session and Intro Interview.

During this third recruitment window (also called the open period), students from both partner and non-partner schools are welcome to apply. Students from non-partner schools should first contact the organizer via Skype chat for a brief discussion before proceeding.

The CCIP’s application process is known to be more thorough than others' for various reasons. The program's system is designed to be in sync with the federal SEVIS system. As such, complete, accurate, and current information is necessary. Also, the program uses the application process to filter out less committed and less qualified candidates.

The application process may seem complicated in the beginning, but the program has had a zero visa rejection rate over the past ten years with approximately 1000 participants.


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.
