The United States Embassy in Uruguay is pleased to announce the Study of the United States Institutes Summer 2017 for Scholars and Secondary School Educators.  The program is designed as a rigorous six-week faculty level seminar hosted at U.S. universities for multinational professional groups (see eligibility criteria below). The purpose of the institutes is to provide participants from countries worldwide with a deeper understanding of American society, education, culture, and institutions, past and present, in order to strengthen curricula and improve the quality of teaching about the U.S. in college, university, and secondary school classrooms abroad. This year SEVEN institute programs are offered:

Eligibility:  Applicants should be citizens of Uruguay, mid-career, typically between the ages of about 30-50, highly-motivated and experienced professionals from institutions of higher education as well as secondary school educators (including teachers, teacher trainers, department chairs, curriculum developers, textbook writers).

Very good knowledge of English is required as the seminars are conducted in English.

Program Funding: The U.S. Government will cover all institute costs, i.e. international travel and allowances; domestic travel and ground transportation; visa fees, book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; admissions; housing and subsistence.
