Russian-US Young Leadership Fellows Program

 

IREX and the United States Information Agency are pleased to announce the 1999 Russian-US Young Leadership Fellows Program. The program provides one year of intensive academic and professional training to young US and Russian leaders in the fields of American and Russian area studies, conflict resolution, economics, government studies, history, international relations, and political science.

The program includes one year of non-degree academic study at qualified universities and colleges, a community service component, and a four to twelve week internship. The goal of the Russian-US Young Leadership Fellows Program is to promote and support democracy, economic prosperity, and civil society in Russia by fostering the educational and social development of the next generation of US and Russian leaders. Approximately 20 US and 54 Russian fellowships will be awarded for the period of August 1999 through August 2000.

All applicants must demonstrate academic excellence, leadership potential, interest in public service or evidence of involvement in community service, and proficiency in written and spoken English and Russian. All participants are required to submit a final summary report discussing their program activities, the results of their study, and future plans upon returning to their home countries, including plans to continue community or public service activities.

The program provides round-trip travel from fellows^ homes to their host institutions, medical insurance, monthly stipends for housing and living expenses, and limited allowances for books and tuition.

Post-fellowship opportunities will also be available to alumni of the Russian-US Young Leadership Fellows Program for continued professional growth. Opportunities for alumni of US government-sponsored exchange programs in the United States generally include: participation in regional conferences, seminars, and lecture series. Alumni will also have access to the Young Leaders listserv, a new on-line and print journal, and other publications.

The application deadline for both Russian and American applicants is February 26, 1999.
