Russian Overseas Flagship Program

The Russian Overseas Flagship Program was established in 2004 to address the critical need for U.S. professionals able to speak, read, understand, and write Russian at the highest levels of functional proficiency. The program is open to advanced-level learners of Russian who are committed to attaining "professional" or "distinguished-level" language proficiency (ILR 3, 3+, 4/ACTFL "Superior" or “Distinguished” levels) through an intensive nine-month language training program tailored to their professional interests and academic specialization.
