Russia’s Global Education Program Launched a New Website
The Global Education program was finally approved on June 20, 2014. Global Education, which will fund graduate studies in high-tech (engineering), public administration, education administration and social services fields, will run from 2014-2016 and distribute 4.41 billion rubles to 750 participants. Participants must return to Russia and contribute to the socio-economic development of the Far East and East Siberian regions. The program recently launched a new website.
EducationUSA Russia is ready to help you connect with potential graduate students and potential recipients of Global Education funds. Please contact us for more information.
Visiting EducationUSA Centers in Russia
U.S. university representatives interested in visiting Russia to conduct university business must be sure to travel on a business visa. EducationUSA centers in Russia cannot accommodate presentations for any representatives traveling on a tourist visa. Representives visiting higher education fairs, whether they are EducationUSA or a commerical event, should also only plan to participate with a business visa.
Higher Education Fairs
EducationUSA Russia will be hosting higher education fairs in St. Petersburg on October 26 and in Moscow on October 27 as part of the 2015 EducationUSA Eurasia Tour. Please check the fair website for more details. For more details about recruiting in Russia, please contact the Russia Country Coordinator.
Social Media Campaigns
EducationUSA Russia is pleased to announce the schedule of our social media campaigns for the rest of 2015-2016. The purpose of these campaigns is to promote the diversity of higher education opportunities in the U.S. and highlight programs that are less known among Russian students and/or are ones we receive the most questions about. If your institution has program that fit into these categories, please complete this form to participate. We are looking for campus updates, programs news, scholarships, events, or any other information that would be relavant to each theme. Please contact Andrey Kosilov for more details.
