U.S.Mission India Public Diplomacy Grants Program- Teach In India


The role and power of teachers is considerable and their influence over future generations’ views of themselves, their societies and the world is significant. Teachers also play influential roles in their students’ communities through their involvement in extracurricular and community service programs. Through this project, the U.S. Embassy seeks to provide talented, socio-economically disadvantaged American student teachers who plan to teach in public middle and/or secondary schools upon graduation with an opportunity to complete a part of their university’s in-classroom teaching experience requirement in India. The program should also be designed such that the American student teachers have ample opportunities to learn about Indian home cultures and become involved in community projects and/or extracurricular activities, thereby providing a holistic experience for the American student teachers as well as the Indians who he/she engages with, both inside and outside the classroom.

Program Goals:

The goals of this funding opportunity are to:

1. Encourage more Americans to study, teach and intern in India by providing undergraduate and graduate students who plan to teach in American public schools at the middle and secondary school level with opportunities to dig deeply into Indian culture, forge lasting ties with Indian counterparts and fulfill degree course requirements by completing part of their student teaching requirement while abroad.

2. Strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and India by bringing together American educators and Indian students to share experiences and cultures and create individual and institutional linkages.

3. Provide Indian students who may be considering pursuing further studies in the U.S. with insights into the American educational system by exposing them to American teaching methods as well as America’s holistic approach to education with its emphasis on extracurricular activities and community service.

4. Expose future American teachers to aspects of Indian culture and society which can be shared in their future classrooms with their future students thereby helping evolve a more globalized view of education

Program Description

Objective: To develop and implement a seven-week student teaching internship project for 12-24 American undergraduate education majors in India
