Summary

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is seeking proposals for the design and implementation of three Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Secondary Educators. These institutes aim to provide multinational groups of experienced secondary-level educators with a deeper understanding of U.S. society, education, culture, values, and institutions. The program is designed to strengthen curricula and improve the quality of teaching about the United States in secondary schools and academic institutions abroad. Two of the institutes will be for teachers, while one institute will be for secondary-level education administrators and other educational professionals. Each institute will have a four-week academic residency at a U.S. academic institution and a one-week integrated study tour. Approximately 20 participants will be hosted in each institute, totaling approximately 60 foreign secondary educators across the three institutes. For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Organizational Funding Opportunities website.

Two of the Institutes will be for teachers; one Institute will be for secondary-level education administrators and other educational professionals, including, but not limited to, curriculum developers, ministry of education officials, teacher trainers, and textbook writers.
