Alfa Fellowship Program is a high-level professional development
initiative placing up to 18 American, British, and German citizens per
year in work assignments at leading organizations in Russia in the
fields of business, economics, journalism, law, public policy, and
related areas. Key goals of the Alfa Fellowship Program are expanding
networks of American, British, and German professionals, developing
greater intercultural understanding, and advancing knowledge of Russian
affairs in the West.
Alfa Fellowship Program begins with language training in the Fellow’s
geographic location followed by a language course in Moscow starting in
mid-June. Throughout the summer, Alfa Fellows attend a seminar program
with key public and private sector officials to discuss current issues
facing Russia. Fellows then work at prominent organizations in Russia,
including private companies, media outlets, think tanks, and
candidates must have a graduate degree and professional experience in
business, economics, journalism, law, public policy, or a related field.
Russian language proficiency is not required, but is preferred. The
Fellowship includes a generous monthly stipend, language training,
program-related travel costs, housing and insurance.
The application deadline for the 2017-2018 program year is December 1, 2016. To access the online application, please visit: http://www.alfafellowship.org/application-process.
