FY 2021 Study of the U.S. Institutes for Scholars: A Multi-Dimensional Examination of U.S. Society and Institutions FY 2021 Study of the U.S. Institutes for Scholars: A Multi-Dimensional Examination of U.S. Society and Institutions The 2021 Institutes for Scholars will include three weeks of virtual instruction and two weeks of in-person instruction. In-person instruction will include a study tour, with visits to Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, CA. The 2022 Institute for Scholars will be six weeks in length; participants will spend a minimum of four weeks in an academic residency at the host institutions campus and up to two weeks on an educational study tour, including programming in Washington, D.C. at the conclusion of the Institute. Institutes will be organized through an integrated and rigorous academic program that will include lectures, panels, seminar discussions, scholarly research presentations, academic and experiential learning activities that focus on the theme and include debates and, if possible, a scholar symposium where participants could make a presentation about their personal research. Scholars will be provided with independent research time, and exposure to pedagogical philosophy and practice for teaching in their individual areas of expertise. The study tour and local site visits will directly complement the academic program and provide opportunities for participants to observe and partake in varied aspects of American life. In addition, all Institutes will foster ECAs mission to promote mutual understanding between citizens of the United States and other countries. Thus, the programs will include robust opportunities for participants to meet Americans from a variety of backgrounds, to interact with their U.S. peers, and to speak to appropriate student and civic groups about their experiences and life in their home countries.
