  Study of the U.S. Institutes Program (SUSI)

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The non-Fulbright international - compettion program offers university staff/high school teachers an intensive six-week academic seminar at American institutions in order to enhance their teaching about the United States.

One grant per Institute could be offered for successful candidates selected from the pool of international nominees.

The program will include approximately 30 days of residency at the host university campus. During this time, there will be morning and afternoon lecture/discussion sessions as well as study trips to nearby areas. Longer trips to at least two different regions will take place during the last 10 days of the program. The scholars will be exposed to a variety of teaching methods and research resources aimed at helping them to develop their curricula. While individual research is not a primary objective of the program, access to the resources and facilities at the host university will be available to the participants.

Each scholar's expenses on all international and domestic travel, lodging and meals will be fully covered while their allowances for cultural activities, books and material allowances, incidental allowances and health insurance will be provided. Dependents are not allowed to accompany scholars on any part of the program and scholars will not receive a separate allowance to support dependents.
