Description:

The Alfa Fellowship Program is a professional-level inititative
designed to foster a new generation of American and
British leaders with meaningful professional experience
in Russia. The program begins with language training in
the U.S. or U.K., followed by a language course in Moscow.
Throughout the summer and into the fall, Alfa Fellows
attend a seminar program with key government, public,
and private sector offi cials to discuss current issues facing
Russia. Fellows then work at leading organizations in Russia,
including private companies, media outlets, think tanks,
and NGOs. The Fellowship includes a monthly stipend,
language training, program-related travel costs, housing,
and insurance. Fellows are competitively chosen from the
fi elds of business, journalism, law, public policy, or closely
related areas. Russian language profi ciency is preferred,
though not required, at the time of application.
