Summer Russian Language Teachers

The American Councils Summer Russian Language Teachers (ST) 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 reach new levels of competency in Russian, and to experience firsthand the latest developments in the discipline. Advanced-level courses on Russian language, literature, and culture are led by distinguished faculty from Moscow State University's Department of Philology. ST is six-weeks long, and takes place from mid-June to early-August.

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.
