There is still time to apply for the 2010 SUSI Program! 

The “Study of the United States Institutes” are two summer programs for professors and scholars from around the world.  The one for University Faculty includes intensive post-graduate level academic programs and integrated study tours.  A separate one for Secondary School Educators offers a six-week post-graduate seminar in the United States.  The programs usually begin in mid-June and give foreign educators a chance to learn more about the American society, culture and institutions.  The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad.   All of the institute programs will be held this summer at different U.S. universities and colleges.  NOTE: Space in the institutes is very limited.   To be competitive, candidates must have excellent proficiency in English and outstanding qualifications. Application Deadline: January 25, 2010.  More information available here.

The Public Affairs Section created an Educational Advising Center for Poles interested in applying to a U.S. university or college.  We have the latest catalogs and guides and up-do-date information on American universities, colleges and graduate programs. Everyone is welcome to stop by but please let us know a few days in advance to make sure someone is there to assist you (calling at least a week ahead will be much appreciated!)  Questions? Please feel free to contact Educational Advisor Magdalena Wącisz directly at: (022) 504 23 63 or via e-mail:

Here’s what we have available:

  • Profiles of American institutions
  • Areas of study and course descriptions
  • Application procedures and strategies
  • Financial aid availability

NOTE: The Educational Advising Center’s purpose is to provide general information. We do not serve as an agent or recruiter for any particular educational institution.
