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: fulbright_applications.zip (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: www.fulbright.amc.ru or to our email address: Fulbright@fulbright.iie.ru, 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,
Fulbright Program officer,
