Alfa Fellowship Program
Website: Alfa Fellowship Program
The Alfa Fellowship Program was a distinguished international initiative that from 2004 – 2022 offered accomplished Americans, Britons, and Germans the opportunity to complete a high-level professional development program in Russia. Over the course of the program, fellows completed work placements at leading institutions, attended professional seminars, and received intensive language training.
The fellowship provided a monthly stipend, accommodation, insurance, all program-related travel costs, language training in Russia, and private pre-departure tutoring.
The Alfa Fellowship Program was founded with the aim of fostering a community of emerging leaders who have first-hand experience in the business, public policy, and cultural environments of Russia and the region. Over 200 Americans, Britons, and Germans were able to experience the workplace, while living and traveling in Russia through this unique professional opportunity.
The goals of the Alfa Fellowship Program were to expand networks of American, British, and German professionals with experience in Russia, to develop greater intercultural understanding, and to advance knowledge of Russia in the West.
The program was funded by Alfa-Bank, and administered in the U.S., U.K., and Germany by Cultural Vistas and in Moscow by the Fund for International Fellowships and Cultural Dialogue.
Participants on the program were selected based on the following criteria
*Russian citizens were ineligible to apply, including individuals who were also citizens of the United States, United Kingdom, or Germany
- US Citizen
- Permanent Resident
- International or Other Visa Status
