The US Embassy in Dhaka has invited Bangladeshi applications for the Community College Initiative (CCI) Program 2021-2022. 

Bangladeshi undergraduate students, from the first year till the third year, can apply to join the program to spend one academic year in the United States as a full-time student in an American community college.

In addition to coursework, participants are also expected to become active members of their local communities by participating in extracurricular activities and volunteer projects.

After completing the program, participants will return to their home countries with new skills to help them contribute to the economic growth and development of their countries.

Although the program would be a non-degree-earning, students will earn full credits for two semesters and gain first-hand practical experience through internships in their field of study.

Depending on the field of study and school attended, participants may also earn an academic certificate in their field of study.
