In Russia, the Fulbright program has been in operation since 1974. The country received a record number of Fulbright applications for the 2010-2011 year, its Visiting Graduate Student Program being especially popular  (as was the annual Fulbright Summer School in the Humanities hosted as Moscow State University). And improved bilateral relations between the US and Russia are also helping to promote new initiatives such as the Community College Administrator Seminar (a two week program for college administrators to meet with Russian government and higher education representatives).  Review the Russian Fulbright Program’s newsletter “Vestnik” in order to get an idea of what Russia’s Fulbright program has to offer.
