2015 Fulbright Alumni Small Grants
In winter 2015 the Fulbright Program in Russia announced a small-grants competition that was open to all Russian alumni of the Fulbright Program. We received 26 applications 20 of which were fully or partially approved and are now being funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. State Department, with support from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
We congratulate the winners and eagerly anticipate the benefits these projects will bring to Russian Alumni, their home institutions, and the Fulbright Program in Russia.
