They should be between 18 and 25 years old, have a sustained high level of academic achievement as indicated in grades, awards, and teacher recommendations, and be committed to returning to their home universities upon completion of the SUSI program.

A serious interest in learning about the United States and a good command of English are required for prospective candidates.

Successful applicants will join seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, lectures, and educational visits to the United States, besides coursework and classroom activities.

All participant costs, such as international and domestic travel, ground transportation, incidental allowances, housing and subsistence will be paid for by the U.S. Department of State.

Applications, including two letters of recommendation and academic transcripts, must be submitted online and to the U.S. Embassy at 7 Lang Ha Street, Ba Dinh, Hanoi or the U.S. Consulate General at 4 Le Duan Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City by December 17.
