Are you working as a K-12 or university-level Russian teacher? Are you a graduate student studying to become a Russian teacher? The Summer Russian Language Teachers Program provides fellowship support for Russian teachers and graduate students to study Russian language, pedagogy, and culture at the Russian State Pedagogical University (Herzen) in St. Petersburg for a six week summer session.
The American Councils Summer Russian Language Teachers Program offers qualified U.S. pre- and in-service teachers of Russian language and culture from elementary schools, high schools, and universities the opportunity to improve Russian language skills while developing a portfolio of authentic teaching materials for use in the classroom. Courses on Russian language, pedagogy, and culture are led by distinguished faculty from the Russian State Pedagogical University’s Department of Philology. The program is six-weeks long, and takes place from late-June to mid-August.
To be eligible for Fulbright-Hays funding applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are currently serving as K-12- or university-level teachers of Russian language and culture, or graduate students who intend a teaching career. Applications from K-12 teachers of Russian are especially encouraged.
