VICE Summer Fellowship

Two lucky students will have the opportunity to intern at the VICE offices in Brooklyn for eight weeks during the summer (June 6 – July 29, 2016) and will have opportunities to engage with other media organizations, arranged by the Center for Communication. The fellowship will cover travel, housing, and offer a $5,000 stipend for each fellow.

While at VICE, fellows will receive individual instruction and guidance from award‐ winning journalists, producers, and editors. Fellows will also have access to VICE’s state of the art edit suites, production studios and will be encouraged to create and present their own work for review at the end of the program. The Center will also organize three On Location events for the fellows to serve as an introduction to the NYC media landscape.

The fellowship deadline is Monday, February 22 by Midnight EST. If this sounds like you, click here to apply!

Please send any questions about the fellowship to fellowship@centerforcommunication.org.

Alumni Spotlight: Richard Ramsundar, FCLC '15

Today's Alumni Spotlight is on Richard Ramsundar, a FCLC 2015 grad. After graduation, Richard connected with an organization called Amerson Year in China. Through this organization, Richard has had the opportunity to work and travel at the same time. Richard is currently serving as an Educational Ambassador through AYC. He creates and publishes weekly videos about his experience living and working in China in order to share his experience. If you're considering an international move for after graduation, you'll definitely want to check them out on the AYC YouTube channel, or shoot him an email at  raramsundar@gmail.com.

Hello everyone! My name is Richard and like many of you, I'm a part of the Fordham community. I graduated with the class of 2015 with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and I currently work in China as an English teacher at the Number 1 Middle School of Li County. Like many of you, I also had doubts and fears about career paths after graduating. I had no idea whether to plunge headfirst into my intended career or to go to graduate school. One thing I did know is that I wanted to travel and work at the same time. I found an organization called Ameson Year in China, otherwise known as AYC. The organization offered me training and also placed me at my current school. I teach grade one high school students and absolutely love my job. Each month, I create a video blog to give everyone a unique perspective of the reality of living, working and traveling in a different country. If any of you want to know more information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
