VIA provides rich, immersive, cross-cultural learning experiences in the U.S. and Asia that transcend boundaries, transform lives, and strengthen our global community. Founded at Stanford in 1963, VIA is a private, non-profit, and non-religious organization. Our Asia Programs include a Global Community Fellowship for professionals and short-term programs for high school and university students. Annually, we send nearly 100 Americans to Asia and welcome over 300 Asian participants on programs in Silicon Valley. In recent years, we’ve designed and run programs for Stanford University, the University of California Education Abroad Program, Haverford College, George Mason University, and the Department of State.
