Developing Future Leaders in U.S.-Russia Relations
Under this program, U-M students may design and pursue short-term experiential learning projects focusing on cultural, economic, social and political issues of importance to the U.S. - Russia relationship.
IPC/WDC look for a range of creative (but feasible) proposals that focus on practical professional development related to Russia and the broader region. Examples include:
Volunteering with organizations focused on Russian/Eastern European/Central Asian cultural exchange with the U.S.;
Participating in domestic or international training sessions for future American diplomats, businesspeople or economists working on Russia and the surrounding region;
Participating in international affairs/policy simulations related to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO);
Curating an art exhibit related to the region.
IPC/WDC and CREES typically offer three award cycles for this opportunity (fall, winter, and spring/summer terms).
