Internships: Cultural Vistas

University of Toronto’s partner – Cultural Vistas (CV) is a non-profit J-1 visa sponsor that can assist students to obtain J-1 visas to intern in the USA via the Exchange Visitor Program (EVP). Most students who wish to intern in the USA need to work with a visa sponsor before their arrival in the US. CV works both with the student and the host company to ensure that all parties are eligible to participate in the EVP and provides support throughout the duration of the program. University of Toronto students are eligible for special fee rates for Cultural Vistas services. Please note: students must have already received an internship offer prior to applying for CV; CV does not provide placements.
