The U.S. embassy in Azerbaijan told APA that the deadline for the application is April 22, 2011.

The Study of the United States Institutes (SUSI) for Azerbaijani Student Leaders on Civic Engagement provides opportunities for university students to attend an academic residency program at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).
SUSI is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State, and administered by IREX. SUSI is open to undergraduate students from Azerbaijan for non-degree study in the United States for six weeks during the summer of 2011.

All students will attend a pre-departure orientation in Azerbaijan, participate in an academic residency program at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) with a focus on exploring civic engagement and including one week of intensive English language study, travel to significant U.S. civil rights sites in Selma, White Hall, and Montgomery, Alabama and to the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation in Arizona during a regional study tour, and attend a closing workshop in Washington, DC. All participants will stay in UAH dormitories.

The fellowship provides J-1 visa support, round-trip travel from fellows’ home cities to the host institution in the United States, accident and sickness coverage, tuition and university fees, room and board (housing and meals), domestic travel related to the regional study tour, limited allowance for books, cultural activities, and baggage, and a variety of alumni networking and granting opportunities.

Applications for the SUSI Program can be obtained and submitted by contacting the IREX Baku office. Applications can also be downloaded from www.irex.az.

“Exchanges between the United States and Azerbaijan are important tools for increasing understanding and collaboration between our countries,” said Ambassador Matthew Bryza. “Recognizing the need to do even more, the Embassy this year is investing an additional $2 million in exchange programs, providing more short-term exchange opportunities for both university and high school students,” he said.

SUSI is the first step in the new $2 million exchange project; a similar program for high school students will be launched in the coming months.
