The purpose of the Act is ‘‘to enable the Government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries * * * to strengthen the ties which unite us with other nations by demonstrating the educational and cultural interests, developments, and achievements of the people of the United States and other nations * * * and thus to assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic and peaceful relations between the United States and the other countries of the world.’’ The funding authority for the program above is provided through legislation. Purpose: The goal of the Summer Institute for German Student Leaders in Education is to provide young Germans from diverse backgrounds, especially immigrant communities in Germany, and multiple German universities, who are underrepresented in the Fulbright Program and other traditional exchanges, with the opportunity to learn about the United States, and to become familiar with American pedagogical philosophy and techniques. During the program, the students, who are expected to become teachers in Germany following their graduation from university, will become familiar with U.S. campus life, meet a variety of U.S. citizens and have a valuable cultural experience. U.S. institutions of higher education having experience in teacher training/assessment may apply to develop, administer, and provide follow-up to the six-week summer program.
