Community College Initiative

Community College Initiative Program applications are closed for the 2020-21 academic year

The Community College Initiative (CCI) is a U. S. Department of State exchange program for technical and vocational students from South Africa.  The CCI program provides participants with a non-degree, academic-year program at a U.S. community college designed to build participants’ technical skills in applied fields, enhance their leadership capabilities, and strengthen their English language proficiency.  Participants do not need to be current Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college or University of Technology students to apply, though they are welcome.  The program runs on the U.S. academic calendar (August to May) and applications are usually accepted during October-November annually.
