the students who are attending one of five Study of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders will showcase their home countries and cultures. Scholars participating in a Study of the U.S. Institute for Scholars will present their current research through an
academic poster session. Department of State employees and guests will have the opportunity to interact with the Study of the U.S. Institutes participants and learn from them about their cultures and research.
