The second session of FUSIA/CCIP J-1 interns visited the National September 11 Memorial & Museum on Tuesday evening. Due to weather effecting visibility, the original plan to visit the One World Observatory was rescheduled for the following Monday.

With student leaders procuring free tickets to the 9/11 Museum ahead of time, the group gathered after their individual internships to explore the exhibits, which provided historical context and first-hand accounts of the day of the attack. There is also a collection of artwork created by New York City artists.

The museum is 110,000 square feet and includes numerous exhibitions. The Memorial Exhibition includes walls of photographs of the fallen along with artifacts donated by the families of the victims. The Historical Exhibition stands in the location of the former North Tower and presents the events that occurred on September 11, 2001, while also providing the historical significance of the World Trade Center.

The students were most impressed by One World Trade Center's ultra-modern design and bold style that places it among the tallest buildings in the world.


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.
