Community College Initiative Program offering Quality Non-degree Academic Program to Indonesian Citizens

Deadline: 1 December 2019

Applications are now open for the Community College Initiative Program (CCI Program) that provides a quality non-degree academic program at US community colleges intended to build technical skills, enhance leadership capabilities, and strengthen English language proficiency. The program also provides opportunities for professional internships, service learning, and community engagement activities.

CCI participants are recruited from historically underrepresented and underserved communities. In Indonesia, this means AMINEF aims to recruit applicants beyond Indonesia’s major cities and in provinces beyond Java Island, which historically have had fewer opportunities for study abroad.

A special initiative funded by PT Freeport Indonesia allows a certain number of candidates from the provinces of Papua and West Papua every year to receive CCI Program awards.

The CCI Program will provide funding for J-1 visa support; round-trip travel from participant’s home city to host institution in the United States; tuition and mandatory college fees; housing and meals; small allowance for books and incidental expenses, limited Accident and Sickness coverage that is J-visa compliant; and a variety of personal and professional development activities. Students will be hosted in groups by community colleges competitively selected to participate in the program. Students are required to return home at the end of their program and may not transfer to a four-year US academic institution.
