Focusing on themes in U.S. studies, Institutes are hosted by universities and colleges throughout the United States and are designed to offer a balance between academic and experiential learning though an intensive academic program, site and cultural visits, an educational study tour, and opportunities to engage with American peers through homestays, community service, and research.
