MISSION

Our mission is to equip students with an international lens to education through studying in Cuba.
— The Cuba Fellowship staff

 

Building a world-class study abroad program like The Cuba Fellowship isn't easy.  So we recruited a world-class team.

Our staff has collectively led 50+ study abroad trips with thousands of students in 20+ countries all around the world.  Also, we know that perspectives on Cuban can be controversial. Our teachers take no overt political stance and are dedicated to presenting historically accurate narratives on topics covered in every class.

For centuries, Cuba’s greatest resource has been its people.
— Pico Iyer

We're excited to connect American students with the incredible people of Cuba that they haven't been able to meet in person for so long.
