Opportunities are available for artists, college and university faculty, professionals, and independent scholars to teach and conduct research at educational institutions and research institutions in Russia. Fulbright Scholars represent the diversity of the United States and build lasting relationships with students, collaborators, the wider research community, and/or institutions abroad that serve as the foundation for future collaborations. There are six opportunities available in Russia including the following highlights:
