Study of the U.S. Institute for European Student Leaders (SUSI)

Applications are now open for 2017 SUSI programmes to the US.  

Deadline: 15 January 2017 at Midnight. 

Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Student Leaders from Europe are intensive short-term 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.  Previously known as the Summer Institutes for European Student Leaders and managed by ECA/A/E/EUR, the SUSI programs for Student Leaders from Europe are five-week Institutes that consist of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures.  Each Institute will have up to total 22 participants (one participant from the UK) and will include a four-week academic residency component and a one-week integrated study tour.  The coursework and classroom activities will be complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community.  During the academic residency, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom.

Who can apply?

Applicants are expected to be highly motivated, first through third year undergraduate students from colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education, who demonstrate leadership through academic work, community involvement, and extracurricular activities.  

Their fields of study will be varied, and may include the sciences, social sciences, humanities, education, business, and other professional fields.
