Grants and Contracts Details


rom the IIE website: “The EducationUSA Training Institute is an intensive training and professional development program designed to provide EducationUSA advisers with the knowledge and skills needed to enhance their effectiveness and build professional competency. Each 2-week EducationUSA Training Institute is comprised of a Washington, DC-based workshop, including sessions at the U.S. Department of State and an on-campus training element with site visits to public and private institutions. The Training Institute is a core activity of EducationUSA’s Professional Development Program and is offered several times each year, targeting different levels of advising." The EducationUSA program is a division of the US Department of State, that refers international students to US universities and helps them through the selection and application process. The trainings are run by the Institute of International Education. Various institutions apply to host the second week (the on-campus portion of the Training Institutes) as a way to help EducationUSA get to know their own institutions. With this in mind, UK applied to host a Training Institute for May/June 2013. Because proposals involve multiple institution types, UK involved both BCTC and Georgetown College in the week´s schedule of training meetings.
