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. Through engagement with Russian educators at a variety of regional institutions, applicants will discuss issues concerning the U.S. system of higher education, focusing on the model and role of community colleges in this system and in local communities; share best practices in education administration, alternative pathways to higher education, and workforce training. The overall objective is to prepare U.S. and Russian institutions to internationalize their campuses, broaden the scope of their programs and provide mobility opportunities. 

The program includes post-arrival country briefing and site visits to Russian institutions of higher education. 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.
