The Cultural Vistas Fellowship aims to provide American students from groups historically underrepresented in international programs with the unique opportunity to advance their career goals, develop global competencies, and experience life in another culture. The Fellowship provides a group of U.S. university students fully-funded eight-week summer internship and immersion experiences in Argentina, Germany, and India. This fellowship is meant for students who have not had the opportunity to study, intern, or live abroad before. 


Strong preference will be given to applicants from underrepresented groups. This includes, but is not limited to: Pell Grant recipients; veterans; first-generation college students; STEM majors; members of minority communities within the United States; and non-traditional students. Cultural Vistas recognizes a broad definition of the term 'underrepresented.' Students should be between 18-30 years old, enrolled full-time at a 4-year accredited college or university in the United States, and have the status of a sophomore or junior at the time of application.

Selection Criteria

Applicants should be able to demonstrate their interest and commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation, and be passionate about the potential for the international exchange of ideas in this field. They should be open-minded, flexible, and curious about cultures other than their own.
