On May 20, the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) welcomed a group
of students from Morgan State University who will study Hindi in Jaipur and
volunteer with Indian NGOs as part of their service learning projects. The
group will stay in India for five weeks. AIIS provided an orientation for
the group, which was attended by Mark Nachtrieb, Cultural Attaché at the
U.S. Embassy.  Nachtrieb spoke to the students at length about keeping
track of their progress and enjoying their stay in India. The orientation
also included discussions of Indian society and culture and an overview of
the Hindi language program at AIIS.  IFLE supported AIIS under the American
Overseas Research Centers program for the FY 2007-10 cycle, and it is a
grantee under the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad long term language
program. Please go

[image: Chinese Delegation with IFLE Staff]
  On Monday April 16, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education received a
delegation of 12 administrators from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
This is administered by the office of International and Foreign Language
Education (IFLE) through the Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad (SA) Program.
Through the SA program and collaboration with the Ministry of Education in
the PRC, we are able to bring two delegations from the PRC to the U.S. for
two weeks, twice annually. Through this bilateral agreement with the
Ministry of Education, we also send a group of 16 American educators and
administrators to the PRC each summer for four weeks. The purpose of this
relationship is to strengthen educational ties between our two countries
and build a mutual understanding of how we teach future generations.  This
relationship between the U.S. and the PRC has been ongoing for several
decades. The programs in the PRC and the U.S. are administered by the
National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR). You can find more
information about the program
