The Office of Global Educational Programs in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), announces an open competition for the FY 2024 Survey of International Educational Exchange Activity in the United States. U.S. public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to conduct a comprehensive statistical survey (census) of foreign nationals enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions, foreign scholars at U.S. institutions, and U.S. students studying abroad for academic credit and to collaborate with national agencies, country representatives, and academic mobility researchers from around the world to collect and report accurate, timely and comprehensive data on global student mobility.
A requirement for the execution of this survey is collaborating, under ECA’s guidance, with the U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA network, which promotes U.S. higher education in countries around the world. This includes sharing of data to include numbers of students enrolled at U.S. institutions by state, academic level and field of study, with EducationUSA Program Officers, Regional Educational Advising Coordinators (REACs) and EducationUSA advising centers. EducationUSA representatives may provide feedback and verification on country specific mobility data and support collection of data on foreign student perceptions of study abroad. EducationUSA centers operate in variety of physical locations including U.S. embassies and consulates, Fulbright commissions, binational centers, non-governmental organizations, universities and libraries. The recipient should similarly collaborate with the U.S. Department of State’s USA Study Abroad programs and initiatives as relevant.
