The Embassy of the United States of America in Mexico is pleased to announce the Department of State will sponsor three Study of United States Institutes addressed to Secondary School educators and administrators over the course of five weeks in the beginning of June 2019, pending budget approval. Two will be focused on classroom teachers and the third on administrators, including teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers and ministry of education officials, among others. Each institute will have 20 participants selected from a worldwide competition and will include a four-week academic residency component plus a one-week integrated study tour.
CANDIDATE DESCRIPTION AND QUALIFICATIONS:
Study of the U.S. 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 or limited prior experience in the United States, and who have special interest in the secondary education as demonstrated through past scholarships, accomplishments, and professional duties.
Candidates should be mid-career, highly motivated and experienced secondary school educators and administrators. Ideal candidates are individuals who are seeking to introduce or enhance aspects of U.S. Studies into their curricula or to offer specialized seminars/workshops for education professionals in U.S. studies or related fields. While the candidates’ scholarly and professional credentials are an important consideration, the potential impact and multiplier effect of the Institute is equally important.
Candidates must demonstrate English language fluency: 213 CB (computer-based) TOEFL or 550 Institutional TOEFL score or equivalent levels 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.
Candidates should be willing and able to fully take part in an intensive post-graduate level academic program and study tour. While senior and entry level educators 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.
Mexican citizenship. Interested parties with dual nationalities (U.S. and Mexican) or those holding resident status in the U.S. are ineligible.
