Dear NCURA Global Community:

Are you interested in tackling social challenges, empowering fellow citizens, and connecting people in the U.S. and Russia?

SEE - US-Russia Social Expertise Exchange -  is launching the sixth round of their new initiative to enable individual U.S. and Russian social experts to build cross-border collaborative projects that address common social challenges and benefit both countries. Competitively selected candidates travel to an organization in the host country for 7 to 14 days to conduct activities related to their proposed project.

Over the course of project implementation in the host country, participants gain new skills and expand their professional networks. Upon their return home, independent professionals strengthen professional practice in their home institutions and benefit their own communities through implementation of activities directed at relevant home country constituencies making use of insights gained abroad.

Independent Professionals are selected via an open competition process. The application and other relevant materials are available for download on SEE's website. Applications for the current competition cycle must be received by July 24, 2017 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time (July 25, 2017 at 6:59 AM Moscow Time).

For further details including questions on the application process, please follow this link:  http://www.usrussiasocialexpertise.org/node/592
