Who We Are:

The Indo-Pacific Department within the Program Development Team develops and implements new Cultural Vistas initiatives in the Indo-Pacific region. Our team works on new program design and project implementation for regional programs including workshops, conferences, small grants initiatives, as well as the Professional Fellows reciprocal exchange program.

The Professional Fellows Program (PFP) is a two-way, global exchange program, funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and designed to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, as well as build lasting, sustainable partnerships between mid-level emerging leaders from foreign countries and the United States. Cultural Vistas serves as the implementing partner for PFP Asia-Pacific, Economic Empowerment, and will recruit PFP participants from the Pacific to complete intensive fellowships in non-profit organizations, private sector businesses, and government offices across the U.S.-affiliated Pacific for an individually tailored professional development experience. International Fellows build a broad network with American and other program participant colleagues as they develop a deeper understanding of U.S. society and the economic and cultural ties existing within the Pacific Region. The PFP is a two-way exchange, with American participants who have hosted foreign fellows traveling overseas for participant-driven reciprocal programs.
