Each Institute should be organized for a group of 20 foreign undergraduate women for a total of 80 participants in four concurrent Institutes. Each Institute will focus on a specific theme. The themes selected for these Institutes are Civic Engagement, Economic Empowerment, Environmental Issues, and Public Policy. Institutes should be five weeks in duration, including an academic residency at a U.S. academic institution of approximately four-weeks and an integrated educational study tour of approximately one-week. The academic residency should take place at a U.S. university or college campus, and should include academic coursework as well as weekly community service activities, weekly leadership development sessions, and opportunities for interaction with diverse American speakers and peers. The study tour to another region of the United States should complement the academic residency. A convening event will bring participants together from all four Institutes for networking and exploration of program themes. The program should include opportunities for continued follow-on engagement once participants return home.
