The US government has invited application from Bangladeshi undergraduate students to be enrolled as a full-time student at an American community college for one academic year.

US Embassy Dhaka on Monday announced the youth development programme for the Community College Initiative (CCI) Programme for 2021-2022. The deadline for applying for the program is 4:30pm on January 7, 2021. It said Bangladeshi undergraduate students from the first year to third year can apply to the programme.

The CCI is a non-degree-earning programme that builds participants’ technical skills in applied fields, enhances leadership capabilities, and strengthens English language proficiency, and provides opportunities for professional internships and community service and engagement activities through immersion in day-to-day life in the United States.
