The Fulbright Scholar Program for Faculty and Professionals offers a variety of opportunities for both area and non-area specialists to lecture, conduct research, or carry out both activities in the Russian Federation for academic year 2011-12.

Scholars may conduct research independently or in collaboration with Russian colleagues and/or teach undergraduate and graduate courses. Research projects will require a level of Russian language proportional to the scope of the project; teaching assignments are in English.
