The Office of Global Educational Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), U. S. Department of State is seeking to administer a new educational initiative, the FY 2015 EducationUSA Academy, which would take place in the summers of 2016, 2017, and 201 8. EducationUSA Academy
will support Education USA's overall goal of promoting U. S. higher education abroad.
The long-term goal of EducationUSA Academy is to create a new recruitment pipeline for international high school students who may not have considered undergraduate study in the United States by creating a network of summer programs at participating U. S. colleges and universities, each aimed at providing a combination of intensive English language training and college-preparatory content.
Over time, it is expected that many accredited U. S. colleges and universities will apply to become part of the EducationUSA Academy network, and the program will increase and diversify international enrollment at two- and four-year institutions across the country.
