U.S. receives applications from Brazilian undergraduates for the 2021 education and future of work program

Candidates can submit their applications until January 8.


The U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Brazil are pleased to announce the call for applications for the Studies of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders (SUSI) on Education and the Future of Work. The SUSI is a five-to-six-week academic program designed for foreign undergraduate students, fluent in English, between the ages of 18 and 25 to improve their understanding of the United States and to develop their leadership skills.  A total of four (4) Brazilian participants will be selected to join candidates from India, Indonesia, Tunisia, and Nigeria. Applications for the 2021 program are being accepted until January 8.

The SUSI on Education and the Future of Work will explore how technology, the job economy, and skill-based education are interconnected in the United States.  The Institutes will expose participants to global issues in the context of the future of work by examining educational, social, and economic trends.  The program includes a four-week academic residency consisting of interactive classroom activities, discussions, lectures, readings, site visits, and workshops; a one-week educational study tour to a different region of the United States; leadership skills building activities; community service; and opportunities to interact with American peers on a college campus. 

In line with Department of State policies, Brazilians who have had little or no exposure to the U.S. Higher Education system, or the U.S. Mission exchange programs will have preference in the selection process.

If you wish to be considered for the SUSI program, please fill the form and attach the documents as requested: https://forms.gle/HXoVWg3cbv1rkBYL6
