2013 Study of the United States Institutes for Scholars

 U.S. Mission Uganda is soliciting candidate applications for six competitive Summer  2013 Study of the U.S. Institutes for university faculty and other related scholars. 

Study of the United States Institutes for Scholars are intensive post-graduate level academic programs with integrated study tours whose purpose is to provide foreign university faculty and other scholars the opportunity to deepen their understanding of U.S. society, culture, and institutions.  The ultimate goal is to strengthen curricula and to improve the quality of teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad. 

Institute Themes:
American Politics and Political Thought
Contemporary American Literature
Journalism and Media
Religious Pluralism in the United States
U.S. Culture and Society
U.S. Foreign Policy

Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the website to obtain general information about the Institutes.  The website address is: http://exchanges.state.gov/susi.

Candidates should be mid-career, typically between the ages of 30-50, highly-motivated and experienced professionals generally from institutions of higher education or research focused organizations (non-profits, think tanks, etc.).   The ideal candidate is an experienced professional with little or no prior experience in the United States. While the nominee's scholarly and professional credentials are an important consideration, an equally important factor is how participation in the institute will enhance mutual understanding course offerings in U.S. studies at the nominee's home institution.

How To Apply:   Interested applicants should email their curriculum vitae plus a one page statement on how you are involved in teaching and introducing aspects of U.S. Studies into your curricula, developing new courses in the subject of the institute you are interested in, enhancing and updating existing courses on the United States, or plan to offer specialized seminars/workshops for professionals in U.S. Studies areas related to the program theme.

Applications should be sent to the Cultural Affairs Specialist, U.S. Mission Uganda
