Benjamin Franklin Summer Institute program is suspended until further notice.
The Benjamin Franklin Summer Institute in the United States will bring together approximately 45 students, ages 16-18. The Institute will host 35 students from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan – seven students from each of these five countries – who will be joined at the Institute by 10 competitively-selected Americans. Activities will include discussions of global issues of common interest, leadership and media training, collaborative project development, community service, educational travel, and plans for follow-on activities. The Institute will be three-to-four-weeks in duration between late June and late August.
The program will be intensive, academic, and highly interactive. The program sponsors seek energetic applicants who are ready to develop their skills in order to be effective leaders in their schools and communities.
