Study of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders: 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 approximately fifteen (15) Study of the United States Institutes for Student Leaders under five different themes. Taking place over the course of five weeks, the Institutes will be scheduled throughout a one year period, starting in April, 2010 and ending in March, 2011. The scheduling of each Institute should coincide with the academic calendar of the participants' home country(ies) (see specific themes, dates, and country groups below in section I.4). The Institutes should take place at U.S. academic institutions and provide groups of highly motivated undergraduate students from the countries and regions noted below with in-depth seminars on the topics detailed in the following section. Each Institute should include four weeks of academic residency followed by a one-week integrated educational travel tour that will expose participants to a different region of the United States. The one-week educational study tour should conclude with a two or three day session in Washington, D.C. Each Institute will host up to 20 participants, for a total of approximately 300 students. ECA plans to provide several awards for the administration of the 15 Study of the U.S. Institutes and welcomes applications from accredited postsecondary education institutions in the United States and public and private non-profit organizations or consortia of organizations (see Eligibility Information, section III). The awarding of Cooperative Agreements for this program is contingent upon the availability of FY 2010 funds.
