The Alfa Fellowship Program is a distinguished international initiative that each year offers accomplished young Americans and Britons the opportunity to complete a high-level professional development program in Russia. Over the course of the program, Fellows complete work placements at leading institutions, attend professional seminars, and receive intensive language training.
The fellowship provides a monthly stipend, health insurance, all program-related travel costs, language training in Russia, and private tutoring in the US/UK.
Key goals of the Alfa Fellowship Program are to expand networks of American, British and Russian professionals, develop greater intercultural understanding, and advance US/Russian and UK/Russian relations.
The application deadline for participation in the Alfa fellowship program during 2012 is December 12. For more information and to download a program brochure visit http://www.alfafellowship.org/.
