These Institutes should provide a multinational group of experienced foreign university educators, scholars, and other professionals with a deeper understanding of U.S. society, culture, values, and institutions. Three of these Institutes will be for groups of 18 foreign university level faculty, focusing on the themes of Journalism and Media, U.S. Culture and Society, and U.S. Foreign Policy. The fourth Institute will be a general survey course on the United States for a group of 30 foreign secondary educators. Applicants may propose to host only one Institute listed under this competition. Should an applicant propose to host more than one Institute, or submit multiple proposals under this competition, the applicant‟s proposal(s) will be declared technically ineligible and given no further consideration in the review process.
