Education & Culture

The U.S. Mission’s Cultural Affairs section oversees the U.S. government’s efforts to strengthen our relationships with the people of India. We do this through speaker programs, academic, cultural and professional exchanges, alumni community engagement, higher education promotion, cultural preservation, English teacher training, and select grants to non-profit organizations. India is fortunate to have a great set of American Spaces, several in the hearts of thriving metropolitan cities (New Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad), where Indians can learn more about America, engage with Americans, and contribute to the development of this important bilateral relationship.
