About the Community College Initiative Program

The United States Department of State’s Community College Initiative (CCI) Program provides participants from underserved areas and underrepresented groups with a one-year, non-degree academic program at a U.S. community college. The program is designed to build participants’ technical skills in applied fields, enhance their leadership capabilities and strengthen their English language proficiency. The program also provides opportunities for professional internships, service learning and cultural exchange through community engagement activities.
