SUSI Scholarship 2018 by US Embassy has been announced and is now accepting applications. The Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Student Leaders are intensive short-term academic programs whose purpose is to provide groups of undergraduate student leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States, while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.  Institutes consist of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures.  Coursework and classroom activities are complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community.  During the four-week academic residency, participants also have the opportunity to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom.
