Alumni Programs

Russian Alumni

Since 1992, U.S. government-funded exchange programs have brought more than 80,000 Russian citizens to the United States for education, exchange and training activities. These programs give participants an opportunity to obtain knowledge and develop skills in their fields of expertise and to establish valuable contacts with U.S. colleagues.

The U.S. Embassy in Moscow is committed to supporting alumni by introducing them to resources based upon their exchange experience and facilitating further connections among alumni of U.S. government programs across Russia and the world.
