Global Russia is a one-of-a-kind program designed specifically for young adults with a strong professional and/or academic interest in Russia.
The program consists of six individual two-week blocks in which a small group of no more than ten rigorously selected participants are taken on a facilitated field trip to different parts of Russia to meet with high-level officials, business leaders, journalists, academics, and civil society groups, as well as explore cultural landmarks and enjoy nightlife.
Program cost may vary for each block. The price includes accommodation and transfers between program destinations within Russia. The program cost does not include visa fees (although organizers will assist with the visa application process), airfare to and from Russia, travel insurance, cultural attractions outside of the program, food and other personal expenses.
To qualify for participation, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents between the ages of twenty and thirty-five and be able to demonstrate a strong academic and/or professional connection to Russia.
