UPDATE

ALL Cuba Fellowship programs after August 15th are temporarily on hold, pending release by the United States government of new foreign policy regulations following a speech by the U.S. President, Vice President, Senator from Florida, and Governor of Florida.  (President Trump's remarks begin 30 minutes into the video.)

You may still fill out an application and be put on the waitlist for if/when we continue study abroad programs again in the future. 


 

Study Abroad in Cuba. It's finally open again.

Sign up for 1, 2, or 3 weeks this summer.

 

Cuba Fellows learn about the island from every angle with classes in special-interest topics, connect to thought leaders with seminars and site visits, and have fun exploring historic Havana, Cuban beaches, and the rest of the beautiful island with daily free time.

Based on the way American foreign relations are headed, Cuba may be closing again soon ...  You should come to Havana and study abroad while you still can.

Student Spotlight

Incoming Cuba Fellow (Summer 2017)

ALICIA, WHITTIER COLLEGE

Field of Study: Political Science

On why she wants to be a Cuba Fellow: "I have traveled to Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Italy, France, and Peru. I absolutely love to travel to new places and am always ready for adventure. This fellowship is especially interesting to me because of the relations the US has had with Cuba in the past. I took a class about Cuba and have been mesmerized by the culture ever since. I look forward to connecting with locals and making new friends within the fellowship. This would complete my college experience and would enrich my life. I truly believe travel is the best way to grow and learn in your 20s."

This is the way to see Cuba at its best ... It’s not only the high artistic standards. There is a radiating joy in performance that glows out of each artist, a blaze from something deep in the Cuban soul.
— David Brooks, New York Times
