    Funding Opportunity for U.S. and Russian Independent Professionals
    Eurasia Foundation’s US-Russia Social Expertise Exchange Program (SEE) invites applications from independent professionals in the U.S. and Russia seeking to establish collaboration with international partner(s) in joint pursuit of solutions to one or more of the following issues: Arctic and Environmental Conservation, Indigenous Peoples’ Empowerment, Disability and Inclusion, and Public Health. Successful applicants will conduct knowledge-exchange sessions with their colleagues from the counterpart country to develop their skills, get exposure to new methods and tools, and expand their professional networks. Upon completion of these sessions, independent professionals will implement activities in their home country to convey or apply their new knowledge for the benefit of their colleagues and community. Applicants may request a stipend of up to $1,200 for implementation of activities connected to their proposed project. When international travel restrictions are lifted, participants will travel to their counterpart country for a period of 21 days or longer to conduct site visits and get exposed to new practices in their field (tentatively in the fall of 2021). The exact dates of travel are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Applications are due on March 1, 2021 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
    Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be citizens or permanents residents of the United States or Russia, have a proven academic and/or professional track-record in one or more of SEE’s thematic areas, and be fluent in both English and Russian (or provide a plan to overcome linguistic barriers while traveling and communicating with host organization counterparts). Applicants from Russia must not be affiliated with federal, regional, state, and local government bodies or federal academic and research institutions (except for full-time students).
