American Councils is pleased to announce a new scholarship to support U.S. undergraduate and graduate students participating in business, innovation, and STEM internships in Russia.
The Business, Technology, and Innovation Scholarship supports U.S. undergraduate and graduate students who seek to participate in one of two American Councils internship programs in Russia:
- The Overseas Professional and Intercultural Training (OPIT) Program, which provides a six-week summer internship and coursework in intercultural communication; and
- The Business Russian Language and Internship (BRLI) Program, which combines intensive language study with summer or semester-long internships at businesses, technology start-ups, and STEM centers.
Business, Technology, and Innovation Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need, academic merit, and program compatibility; awards range from $3,000 to $5,000.
U.S. undergraduate and graduate students in business or STEM fields are eligible to apply for American Councils Business, Technology, and Innovation Scholarships. Applicants must be admitted to either OPIT or BRLI to receive funding. No prior study of Russian is required to participate in OPIT.
