The Embassy of the United States of America in Mexico is pleased to announce the U.S. Studies Institutes for scholars offered by the Department of State. A total of seven Institutes will be offered for multinational groups of up to 18 experienced university faculty, scholars, and other related professionals during a six week period beginning in or after June 2019.
CANDIDATES´ DESCRIPTION AND QUALIFICATIONS:
- The Institutes are highly competitive. Priority will be given to candidates who have firm plans to enhance, update or develop courses and/or educational materials with a U.S. studies focus or component, who have no prior or limited experience in the United States, and who have special interest in the program subject areas as demonstrated through past scholarships, accomplishments, and professional duties.
- Candidates should be mid-career, highly motivated, and experienced scholars and professionals generally from institutions of higher education or research focused organizations (not-for-profits, think tanks, etc). While the educational level of participants will likely vary, most should have graduate degrees and substantial knowledge of the thematic area of the Institute or related field.
- Ideal candidates are individuals whose home institution is seeking to introduce aspects of U.S. studies into its curricula, to develop new courses in the subject of the Institute, to enhance and update existing courses on the United States, or to offer specialized seminars/workshops for professionals in U.S. Studies areas related to the program theme. While the nominee’s scholarly and professional credentials are an important consideration, the potential impact and multiplier effect of the Institute is equally important.
- Mexican citizenship. Interested parties with dual nationalities (U.S. and Mexican) or those holding resident status in the U.S. are ineligible.
- Candidates must demonstrate English language fluency, i.e. 213 CB (computer-based) TOEFL or 550 Institutional TOEFL score or equivalents are required. Institutes are rigorous and demanding programs; participants will be expected to handle substantial reading assignments in English and to fully and actively participate in all seminar and panel discussions. English fluency is vital to a successful experience in the Institute for all participants. For information on where to take the TOEFL exam please visit: https://www.iie.org/Why-IIE/Offices/Mexico-City/Assessment/TOEFL-ITP
- Candidates should be willing and able to fully take part in an intensive post-graduate level academic program and study tour. While senior faculty members and new professionals to the field are eligible applicants, first consideration will be given to mid-career professionals with little or no prior experience in the United States, and to persons who are likely to be comfortable with campus life and an active program schedule. The U.S. Department of State strives to recruit diverse nominees including candidates from disadvantaged groups and women.
