ECA: Study of the United States Institutes for Scholars and Secondary Educators

Program Summary

Study of the U.S. Institutes are intensive academic programs whose purpose is to provide foreign university faculty, secondary educators, 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.

ECA is seeking detailed proposals for four different Study of the U.S. Institutes.

  1. The Study of the U.S. Institute on Journalism and Media
  2. The Study of the U.S. Institute on U.S. Culture and Society
  3. The Study of the U.S. Institute on U.S. Foreign Policy
  4. The Study of the U.S. Institute for Secondary Educators


ECA intends to award four separate cooperative agreements to four different institutions under this competition. Therefore prospective applicants may submit only one proposal to host one Institute under this competition. Should an applicant submit multiple proposals under this competition, all proposals will be declared technically ineligible and given no further consideration in the review process.
