About the SUSI:

The FIUTS Study of the US Institute (SUSI) for Student Leaders in Journalism and New Media brings 20 undergraduates from Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Nepal to Seattle for four weeks in the summer. While here, international participants will study journalism and new media, and will participate in volunteer and service activities, leadership workshops, cultural excursions, and a weekend homestay. The last portion of the program will take place in Chicago and Washington D.C.

The Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI), sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, promote a better understanding of the people, institutions, and culture of the United States among foreign students, teachers, and scholars. Study of the U.S. Institutes are short-term academic programs for groups of undergraduate leaders, educators, and scholars from around the world.

The program in Seattle is coordinated by the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS), a local non-profit organization affiliated with the University of Washington that promotes international friendship and cross-cultural understanding in the region. The Seattle Globalist, a daily publication covering the connections between Seattle and the rest of the globe, is collaborating with FIUTS to deliver courses on topics in journalism and new media.
