Last week Cultural Vistas staff met up with 20-plus San Diego-based Train USA and Korea WEST participants for a get together at Basic, a downtown pizza joint that serves up some interesting “All-American” pizzas… like mashed potatoes and bacon!

Top 10 Summer Fellowships of 2014

It’s that time of year again! ProFellow has put together our annual list of our Top 10 Summer Fellowships.

While you may be considering a summer job or unpaid internship, a competitive, paid fellowship could introduce you to a new career path, teach you a new skill or even fund a summer abroad. Application deadlines for summer fellowships typically fall between December and February so now is the best time to prepare.

This weekend ten international interns and trainees from eight different countries — representing Peru, Argentina, Egypt, France, Germany, China, Japan and Brazil — came together to explore the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. along with a couple Cultural Vistas staff members.

A great time was had by all! In the words of one participant:

“It was an amazing experience that let us strengthen bonds between an international community, as we are. We learn new cultural features of leaving in US, including what people likes as spies stories, 007, and sports fans, which also we like… As almost most of us are away from our families, let me say that this meeting seems as a global family reunion, with lots of fun.”

We look forward to seeing more international interns and trainees at future cultural events!
