Upon arriving in Belarus, U.S. Scholars and their family members will receive a full in-country orientation, conducted by staff at the Public Affairs Section.    

The U.S. Embassy in Minsk will involve the Scholars in educational and cultural activities and provide opportunities to build bridges with other local institutions and network with professional communities.
