Culture Corps is a program focused on international students developing projects and initiatives that bring global perspectives to the University of Minnesota campus. International students receive monetary awards based on the time investment, resources committed and impact of the project.
All international students on an F-1 or J-1 visa enrolled full time at the UMN are eligible to apply.
Thank you for this opportunity. This project has been wonderful for me, in many senses. I wish more universities all over the world could develop similar projects, to invest in their students. I wish I could do it again next semester.
The main skill I learned from this project was networking. And I realized how important that was, especially in a university setting, which works much like the professional career world.
I think Culture Corps has helped me learn how to be more confident when giving out information and also challenged me on creativity in order to capture the audience’s attention.
