The Branch for the Study of the United States, Office of Academic Exchange Programs, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, invites proposal submissions for the design and implementation of five different Study of the United States Institutes to take place over the course of six weeks beginning
in June 2011, pending the availability of funds.
These Institutes should provide a multinational group of experienced educators 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 American Politics and Political Thought, Contemporary American Literature, Religious Pluralism in the United States, and U. S. Foreign Policy.
The fifth Institute will be a general survey course on the study of the United States for a group of 30 foreign secondary educators.
Applicants may propose to submit one proposal to host only one Institute listed under this competition.
Should an applicant submit multiple proposals under this competition, all proposals will be declared technically ineligible and given no further consideration in the review process.
