CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: 2018 Study of the U.S. Institute (SUSI) on Civic Engagement for Student Leaders

STUDY OF THE U.S. INSTITUTES (SUSI) FOR STUDENT LEADERS ON CIVIC ENGAGEMENT 2018

APPLICATIONS DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6 2017.

The Study of the U.S. Institute for Student Leaders on Civic is an intensive academic program whose purpose is to provide groups of undergraduate student leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States, while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills. The Institute includes a four week academic residency and a one-week study tour to a different part of the U.S. Leadership sessions and community service activities, as well as getting to know Americans, are also an integral component of the Institute.

Participants are expected to be highly motivated 1st through 4th year undergraduate students from universities who demonstrate leadership through academic work, community involvement and extra curricula activities.

Program dates are January 5 to February 10, 2018.  The Institute will be conducted in English and will be hosted at the Foundation for International Understanding, in Seattle, Washington State.

The Foundation for International Understanding through Students (FIUTS)’s Study of the U.S. Institute on Civic Engagement will focus on democracy, citizenship, and civic activism.  The four week academic residency will provide students with an overview of how citizens have shaped U.S. history, government, and society both as individuals and groups.  The program will define civic engagement, examine its development in the U.S., and explore topics such as citizenship, community building, economic development, grassroots activism, political leadership, and volunteerism.  Other topics such as civil rights, entrepreneurship, ethics, leadership, and media will be discussed.  Students will also have the opportunity to leave the classroom to meet with community leaders, entrepreneurs, and representatives of nonprofit organizations.  The academic residency will be complemented by an educational tour that will take participants to another area of the U.S. where they will meet with local, state, private, and not-for-profit organizations working in the field.  The Institute will then conclude with a visit to Washington, D.C.

The U.S. State Department will cover all participant costs, including: program administration; domestic travel and ground transportation; book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; and housing and subsistence.

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply and candidates will be selected based on their leadership and activism history and their ability to clearly articulate themselves in their personal statement write up (see n. below).
