International House

International House is a dynamic program center and residence for graduate students and interns from over 100 countries, including one-third from the United States. Our mission is to enable selected graduate students to live and learn together in a challenging and supportive residential community that builds lifelong qualities of leadership, respect and friendship among individuals of all nations and backgrounds. Our resident members study or intern at over 75 academic and training institutions in New York City. This diversity means that someone studying music may be living next to someone studying physics and across from someone working at a large international bank. This is what makes us such a unique and special community.

We offer a number of scholarship programs to help International House resident members with housing and living expenses. There are various programs with grants ranging from $500 to $5000 for the academic year. Many of the scholarship recipients are also given the opportunity to participate in the International Leaders Program, which provides both theoretical and practical training in leadership skills with a cross-cultural focus. This academic year, 170 resident members from 56 countries were awarded scholarships.

The programs offered have always been an important component of what makes living here so extraordinary. Each month there is a program almost every day of the week. The types of programs vary from weekly ballroom dancing lessons to guest speakers focusing on the latest issues facing the world or a cultural hour highlighting the music, food and culture of a particular country or region of the world.

I hope you will provide information about International House to the students you serve who are planning to attend graduate programs in the New York City area. Please visit our website at for more information. I can be reached via e-mail at should you have any questions.

Dear colleagues,
We are glad to inform you that the Fulbright Program announced a new competition in Russia.

In short about the programs - one program is for the post graduate students. Those who just graduated or have a diploma of high education or bachelor diploma can go to the US university for 1-2 academic year and study there to receive a M.A. degree as a result. For the post-graduates( aspiranty) there are 2 possibilities: 1/ non-degree coursework for 1 academic year and 2/ research work at the American university for 1 academic year to gather materials and conduct some research to prepare for "kandidatskaya" defense in Russia.

The other program is for scholars ( who have at least "kandidat" degree in Russia). Scholars receive a grant to lecture or to conduct a research for 3 to 8 months in an American University.

Both programs are competition - based. Fulbright Grant covers transportation ( from Russia to US and back), monthly stipend, limited medical insurance, and some allowances.

We already sent to some American Centers our printed materials ( posters, brochures and application forms) and now we send you our applications in Word format as attachments to this message (Application_MA_2004-05.doc (436 Kb), Application_Senior_2004-05.doc (411 Kb), ZIPped: (151 Kb)). Please note that we do not send hardcopies of our applications any more (since last year) as it is a demand of Institute of International Education - applications must be filled in Word and then printed and signed. Taking this to consideration could you please address all the visitors who are interested in our programs either to our web-site: or to our email address:, or please give them our application forms in computer variant.

Please answer us if you need our printed materials and we will immediately send them/ Could you then give us your correct mailing addresses as sometimes the addresses we have are not correct.

Thank you for cooperation!
Waiting for your replies,
Natalia Smirnova

Moscow, Russia.
