  • Luce World Pathways at LaGuardia Community College

    LaGuardia Community College’s Heritage Language Scholar Program capitalizes on today’s demand for workers who embrace our diverse, interconnected, globalized world and develops creative, culturally aware self-starters who can work as part of a team.    

    Heritage Language Scholar Program 2014-15  
    With the support of The Henry Luce Foundation, our World Pathways project taps the potential of students by building upon the inherent bicultural awareness of twelve exceptional heritage language speakers. As heritage language speakers, our students have acquired one of four modern languages—Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish or Arabic—through their home environments and without any formal training.   

    Through language courses, leadership workshops and cultural outings, dedicated faculty mentors and guest speakers guide the Heritage Language Scholars in a year long program designed to enhance language proficiency and global competencies. The program culminates in an internship at an internationally-facing corporation or organization based on each individual student’s professional interest, background and qualifications.  

    Become an Internship Partner  
    Organizations whose operations rely on bilingual workers with multicultural expertise are ideal partners to provide internship opportunities for our Heritage Language Scholars as they develop the needed skills to compete and win in the international business world. Our multilingual students, with their determination and diligence, have much to offer potential employers, whether in the corporate world, government service or nonprofit sector.  

    Join us as we seek to expand students’ horizons and create world citizens for the 21st century global workforce.
