Study of the United States Institutes for Scholars

Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Scholars and Secondary Educators are post-graduate level academic programs for mid-career foreign scholars, faculty, practitioners, and secondary educators that are designed to strengthen curricula and to improve teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad. These Institutes are comprised of a four- to five-week academic residency and one to two weeks of educational travel to a different region of the United States.  In recent years, Study of the U.S. Institutes have been held on the following topics: American Politics and Political Thought, Contemporary American Literature, Journalism and Media, Religious Pluralism in the United States, Secondary Education, U.S. Culture and Society, U.S. Foreign Policy and U.S. National Security and Policymaking.  For more information, please visit this web site or email Eitan Schiffman at
