Cooperative agreement with a USA IHE or nonprofit to coordinate a foreign exchange program with secondary educators. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to foster a deeper understanding of USA values, education, society, and culture.
The Study of the U.S. Institutes for Secondary Educators should provide multinational groups of experienced secondary-level educators with a deeper understanding of U.S. society, education, culture, values, and institutions. Two of the Institutes will be for teachers; one Institute will be for secondary-level education administrators and other educational professionals, including, but not limited to, curriculum developers, ministry of education officials, teacher trainers, and textbook writers. Each Institute should have a four-week academic residency at a U.S. academic institution and a one-week integrated study tour that will expose the foreign secondary educators to another region of the United States. Each Institute will host 20 participants, for a total of 60 foreign secondary educators across all three Institutes.
The award recipient will be responsible for planning, overseeing, and implementing the program including the administration of all three Institutes and the oversight and management of performance of all subaward recipients under the award.

FY 2021 base year, $1,050,000
FY 2022 Non-Competitive Continuation year-one, $1,050,000, pending successful performance and the availability of funds

The anticipated award date for the cooperative agreement will begin on or about September 1, 2021 and end on, or about, September 30, 2025. The Institutes for Secondary Educators should take place in summer 2022 and be five weeks in length (approximately 36 days inclusive of participant arrival and departure days). Institutes are not required to begin on the same date.
A cooperative agreement will be awarded for a period of 12 months (base year) with Non-Competitive Continuations for a second and third period of 12 and 18 months, respectively, to ensure adequate time for post-Institute follow-on activities. ECA will notify the recipient of its intention to exercise or not to exercise a Non-Competitive Continuation at least 90 days in advance of expiration of the current year after an internal evaluation of the recipient’s performance. The decision to exercise a Non-Competitive Continuation will depend both on the satisfactory performance of the recipient and the availability of funds.
