The Study of the U. S. Branch, Office of Academic Exchange Programs, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), invites proposal submissions for the design and implementation of five different Study of the U. S. Institutes for Scholars and Secondary Educators to take place over the course of
five to six weeks at U. S. academic institutions beginning in June 2016, pending the availability of FY 2016 funds.
These Institutes should provide multinational groups of experienced foreign university educators, scholars, teachers, and other professionals with a deeper understanding of U. S. society, culture, values, and institutions.
Four of these Institutes will be for groups of 18 foreign university level faculty, focusing on the themes of Journalism and Media, U. S. Culture and Society, U. S. Foreign Policy, and U. S. National Security Policymaking, each with a total duration of six weeks.
One additional Institute for a group of 20 foreign secondary educators will be a five-week general survey course on secondary education and the United States.
