The United States Embassy in Armenia is pleased to announce a summer 2016 Study of the U.S. Institute for Student Leaders on Local, State, and Federal Public Policymaking. The Institute will be hosted by a university in the United States (to be announced later) and will take place in June and July 2016.
Study of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders are intensive five-week academic programs 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 five-week Institute will consist of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures. The coursework and classroom activities will be complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community. The Institute will include an academic residency component of approximately four weeks and a domestic study tour of approximately one week. During the academic residency, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom. The program will feature students from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey.
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; book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; admissions; housing and subsistence.
APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE E-MAILED TO THE U.S. EMBASSY IN ARMENIA NO LATER THAN Tuesday, December 15, 2015!
