Award Details
Grant Activity

Participate in a group seminar that will focus on the role of community colleges in higher education and the local community.

Site visits will provide American participants with the opportunity to meet with senior administrators, government officials and community representatives. Americans will explain how the U.S. community college system develops educational programs that combine workforce training and civic education and prepares students for additional higher education. Americans will familiarize themselves with Russian institutions. The program will conclude with a debriefing session at the U.S. Embassy.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities‎.
