On Tuesday, June 13, FUSIA/CCIP J-1 interns ( attended the Museum Mile Festival. This outing is consistently one of the favorites among the group's cultural activities.

The festival, which is held along Fifth Avenue, is an annual event that has drawn millions of visitors ever since its inception in 1978. The free event stretches from 82nd to 105th streets and includes open entry to seven different museums, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Among the crowds that had arrived from all over the world, the exchange visitors enjoyed experiencing the cultural history of New York City and seeing some of history's most cherished works of art.

"I loved visiting all of the museums," said one student, "but my favorite was the Guggenheim. The building is a work of art."


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 theĀ¬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.
