Cultural Vistas Fellowship


The Cultural Vistas Fellowship is a fully funded eight-week summer internship program that gives undergraduate students who have not yet participated in a formal study or internship abroad the opportunity to gain practical work experience abroad. Three cohorts of four to five fellows will spend the summer of 2020 in Buenos Aires, Berlin, or another English-speaking country. The Cultural Vistas Fellowship is open to students of all fields who can demonstrate their interest in or commitment to advancing their career goals, developing global competencies, and experiencing life in another culture.

The program will take place in five phases: 

  • Virtual learning component to discuss intercultural communication and contemporary issues in civic engagement and youth involvement.
  • Pre-departure orientation in NYC for fellows to share learning goals and prepare for their internships.
  • Eight-week internships in Buenos Aires, Berlin, or an English-speaking country.
  • Re-entry seminar in NYC, bringing fellows together to reflect on their experiences.
  • Post-program "Fellows in Service" project to be completed on fellows’ campuses or in local communities.
