Fulbright Community College Initiative Program (CCI)

The Community College Initiative (CCI) Program provides Egyptian young professionals an opportunity to attend one academic year of non-degree study at accredited U.S. community colleges. The CCI Program encourages a well-rounded learning and exchange experience and focuses on five program pillars: academics, cultural exchange, service learning, internships, and leadership and action planning. All pillars of the CCI Program are of equal importance. The CCI 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 community engagement. Immediately after completing the program, participants are expected to return to Egypt with new skills and expertise to help them contribute to the country’s development and economic growth. The CCI Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State.
