The ICSP offers a wide variety of cultural services and presentations in order to facilitate cross-cultural understanding. Our international students are prepared to address many topics about their native cultures including history, art, cultural festivals, traditions, music, contemporary lifestyles and more. The students adapt their presentations to fit the needs and interests of their audiences. ICSP students take great pride in representing their countries through ICSP and are delighted to share their cultures with inquisitve audiences throughout the Portland area.
The International Cultural Service Program (ICSP) is a scholarship program for international students dedicated to promoting the recognition of commonalities and appreciation of differences through first-hand knowledge and experience. ICSP students dedicate over 90 hours of cultural presentations and volunteer work each academic year and in turn receive a partial scholarship each term, helping them to acheive their professional goals and develop intercultural speaking skills.
OUR MEMBERS REPRESENT SEVENTEEN COUNTRIES ON FOUR CONTINENTS
"In ICSP, we dissolve our national boundaries to create a vibrant space that allows all members to learn and appreciate the cultural magnificence of each other."
