on grammar and lexical studies, phonetics, vocabulary development, and
conversational skills; area studies, literature, and culture classes for
advanced students; classes conducted in small groups of three to six
students or in private tutorials; native-speaking faculty with extensive
experience teaching foreign students; homestays with local families;
undergraduate or graduate credit from Bryn Mawr College; pre-departure
orientation in Washington, D.C.; and logistical support provided by local
American Councils offices. Students with at least two years of college-level
instruction in the target language, Russian, or a language related to the
target language are eligible to apply to the program.
 
Fellowships are available through American Councils from U.S. Department of
State (Title VIII) and U.S. Department of Education (Fulbright-Hays) grant
support. Recent program participants have also received substantial
